the data file.
The C file name is made by taking the base name of the data
replacing dots by underscores, and adding a
If the -a option is used, platform specific assembly
code is generated instead of C code.
Most C compilers will accept both C and assembly files.
Instead of writing a filename with a

- -h, -?, --help
Print help about usage and exit.

The default destination directory is the current directory.
- -n, --name name

indicated big endian data, and the letter
indicates little endian ones).
- -f, --filename name
Normally, an ICU data file such as mydata.icu will be turned into mydata_icu.c and mydata_icu.o.
However, if this parameter was set to "somedata", the output files will be somedata.o and
