       iconv - character set conversion

       iconv [-c] [-s] [-f encoding] [-t encoding] [inputfile ...]
       iconv -l

       The  iconv program converts text from one encoding to another encoding.
       More precisely, it converts from the encoding given for the  -f	option
       to  the	encoding  given	 for  the -t option. Either of these encodings
       defaults to the encoding of the current locale. All the inputfiles  are
       read  and  converted  in	 turn;	if no inputfile is given, the standard
       input is used. The converted text is printed to standard output.

       When option -c is  given,  characters  that  cannot  be	converted  are
       silently discarded, instead of leading to a conversion error.

       When  option -s is given, error messages about invalid or unconvertible
       characters are omitted, but the actual converted text is unaffected.

       The encodings permitted are system dependent. For the  libiconv	impleā€
       mentation, they are listed in the iconv_open(3) manual page.

       The  iconv  -l command lists the names of the supported encodings, in a
       system dependent format. For the libiconv implementation, the names are
       printed	in  upper case, separated by whitespace, and alias names of an
       encoding are listed on the same line as the encoding itself.
