RE: Shift-JIS <-> Unicode?

Yes. There is one on the Unicode FTP site. There is also one in the ICU library (

Before you go off and get the table, though, you should note that:

1. There are several varieties of SJIS. Notably Microsoft code page 932 is not quite the same as what Oracle/Solaris/AIX/HP-UX call SJIS. You need to decide what you mean by "Shift-JIS".

2. Most programming environments have built in conversion capabilities that you can call and these will generally be more "natural" to use than writing your own. I say "natural" because the conversions will be similar to other programs running in that environment, providing the behavior that users expect.

Internationalization is an architecture. It is not a feature.
