The file
contains mapping data for 8859-5 to Unicode. The tool is left as an exercise for
the reader :-)

Here is a sample line:
(I don't know why this differs from your example...)

Also you will find many other mapping files for 8859, Windows, MacOS, etc.

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
