         I am looking for some code to perform the following conversions:

         UNICODE -> Shift-JIS
         Shift-JIS -> UNICODE
         UNICODE -> EUC
         EUC -> UNICODE

         Is this code made available via the UNICODE consortium? If not, can
         you point me in the right direction where I may find such code, or any
         information that I may be able to use to write my own conversions?

         Any help would be greatly appreciated.

AIX 4.1.1 provides such conversion tables (binary and source) form.
See "IBM-eucXX" and IBM-932 for Shift-JIS.
The conversions can be found in /usr/lib/nls/loc/uconvTable/*
(You'll need to install the bos.loc.adt package.)

If you are interested in OEM'ing the tables and/or the drivers...
contact Terry McKenna <> or myself. No guarantees
but we'll see what can be done.


PS. you can also find the following (as of AIX 4.1.3):
