iconv(1)							      iconv(1)

       iconv - Converts encoded characters to another codeset

       iconv -f from_code -t to_code [file...]

       Interfaces  documented on this reference page conform to industry stan‐
       dards as follows:

       iconv:  XCU5.0

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page	 for  more  information	 about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       Specifies the input codeset.  Specifies the output codeset.

       Specifies  one or more files that contain the data to be converted.  If
       this operand is omitted, the standard input is used.

       The iconv command converts the encoding of characters in file from  one
       coded  character set to another and writes the results to standard out‐

       The input and output coded character sets are identified	 by  from_code
       and to_code.  If the file operand is not specified on the command line,
       the iconv command reads the standard input.  The result	of  specifying
       invalid	characters  in	the  input  stream  is that the input value is
       translated to the substitute character.

       [Tru64 UNIX]  Current industry standards do not specify the  name  for‐
       mat,  implementation,  and  location  of the codeset converters used by
       this command.  On this operating system, the command searches  directo‐
       ries  of algorithmic and table converters to find one that performs the
       requested conversion. The names of codeset  converters  adhere  to  the
       following format: fromcode_tocode

       Success.	 An error occurred.

       [Tru64 UNIX]  You can view the diagnostic messages that may be returned
       by  the	iconv  command	by  entering  the   following	commands:   cd
       /usr/lib/nls/msg/en_US.ISO8859-1 dspcat iconv.cat

       The  following  examples use the iconv command: To convert the contents
       of the eucJP_data file from the eucJP to the SJIS codeset and save  the
       results in the sjis_data file, enter: iconv -f eucJP -t SJIS eucJP_data
       > sjis_data To convert the contents of the  eucJP_data  file  from  the
       eucJP  codeset  to  the	UCS-4  codeset	and  save  the	results in the
       UCS_4_data file, enter: iconv -f eucJP -t UCS-4 eucJP_data > UCS_4_data

       The   following	 environment   variables   (see	  i18n_intro(5)	   and
       l10n_intro(5))  affect  the execution of the iconv command: Specifies a
       default value for the locale category variables that are not  set.   If
       set  to	a  nonempty  string  value,  overrides the values of all other
       locale variables, including LANG.  Determines the locale for interpret‐
       ing  byte  sequences as characters in, for example, command parameters.
       Specifies the locale used to find translations, if any,	for  the  com‐
       mand's  message catalogs.  [Tru64 UNIX]	Specifies the search path used
       to find locales and the subdirectories that contain codeset converters.
       The  default  is	 /usr/lib/nls/loc.  Determines the location of message
       catalogs for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.

       [Tru64 UNIX]  Algorithmic converters.  [Tru64 UNIX]  Table converters.
