ungreek is a simple C99 script to expand Greek letters in UTF-8 encoding to their Latin names. In addition, uncode is a Python 2.6+ and 3.0+ script to normalize non-ASCII characters to ASCII. Both scripts accept input from <stdin> or as file arguments and write to <stdout>.

To compile ungreek, a C99 compiler has to be available; type make to compile using GNU Make. To use uncode, the PyPI unidecode package has to be installed (pip install unidecode or easy_install unidecode).

Example conversion of a input text file in UTF-8 format:

ungreek unicode.txt | uncode > ascii.txt
