Guido Milanese submitted the texaccents package. Version number: 1.0.0 License type: mit Summary description: Convert composite accented characters to Unicode Announcement text:
TeXaccents is a standalone utility designed to convert legacy (La)TEX (text mode, no math) and BIBTEX codes for “accented” characters to Unicode equivalents. For example, \={a} (’a’ with macron) will be converted to ā. Several utilities are available online that claim to be able to convert legacy (La)TEX encoding to standard Unicode, but they are either not complete (e.g. cannot accept the traditional and peculiar BibTeX encoding) or not always reliable. This utility is obviously useless dealing with modern files written to be processed by LuaLaTeX / XELaTeX, but can be useful dealing e.g. with old BibTeX archives or old LaTeX files.
