Up: Component summary Component


Convert general text files from one character encoding to another. A typical use case is to transform DOS or Finnish format into utf8. If no encoding for the input file is given, the component uses "file -bi" to guess the encoding. This is not guaranteed to work.

Full list of iconv supported character encodings can be found from the iconv website.
