    For use in Yudit, use Yudit itself :)

    You can do the conversion with the Yudit package by issuing the following
    command (in case the input is UTF-8; for others, use the -decode switch of

     uniconv -encode java | perl -ne 's/\\u/0x/'

    And the opposite operation would similarly be:

     perl -ne 's/0x/\\u/' | uniconv -decode java
