SYNOPSIS

iconv [-cs] -f from_name -t to_name [file ...] iconv -f from_name [-cs] [-t to_name] [file ...] iconv -t to_name [-cs] [-f from_name] [file ...] iconv -l

DESCRIPTION

The iconv utility converts the codeset of file (or from standard input if no file is specified) from codeset from_name to codeset to_name and outputs the converted text on standard output.

The following options are available:
-c Prevent output of any invalid characters. By default, iconv outputs an "invalid character" specified by the to_name codeset when it encounts a character which is valid in the from_name codeset but does not have a corresponding character in the to_name codeset.
-f Specifies the source codeset name as from_name.
-l Lists available codeset names. Note that not all combinations of from_name and to_name are valid.
-s Silent. By default, iconv outputs the number of "invalid characters" to standard error if they exist. This option prevents this behaviour.
-t Specifies the destination codeset name as to_name.
