some clarification on this.
I'm trying to find out the Unicode values of characters in ISO-8859-5. I
have a file which contains 8859-5 hex values for these characters. Is there
a tool that will take as input :-

1. codeset (in this case 8859-5)
2. input file name

and create an output file containing the Unicode values for the characters
represented in hex in the input file.

For example

\xb2 in ISO-8859-5 is cyrillic capital letter PE
The unicode value of cyrillic capital letter PE is \u041F

In this case the converter should map \xb2 to \u041F

A tall order?
