       manconv - convert manual page from one encoding to another

       manconv -f from-code[:from-code...]  -t to-code [-dqhV] [filename]

       manconv	converts  a  manual  page  from	 one encoding to another, like
       iconv.  Unlike iconv, it can try multiple possible input	 encodings  in
       sequence.   This	 is  useful  for manual pages installed in directories
       without an explicit encoding declaration, since they may be in UTF-8 or
       in a legacy character set.

       If  an  encoding	 declaration  is found on the first line of the manual
       page, that declaration overrides any input encodings specified on  man‐
       conv's command line.  Encoding declarations have the following form:

	      '\" -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-

       or (if manual page preprocessors are also to be declared):

	      '\" t -*- coding: ISO-8859-1 -*-

       -f encodings, --from-code encodings
	      Try  each	 of  encodings (a colon-separated list) in sequence as
	      the input encoding.

       -t encoding, --to-code encoding
	      Convert the manual page to encoding.

       -q, --quiet
	      Do not issue error messages when the page cannot be converted.

       -d, --debug
	      Print debugging information.

       -h, --help
	      Print a help message and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information.
