PostPosted: Sat 31 Jul 2010, 09:58    Post subject:  GNU iconv - text convertion tool  

project homepage: http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/

iconv allows to convert the coding of a text from the command line. It is very useful when dealing with characters specific to languages different from English. I find it is faster and more reliable than the conversion tools implemented in both AbiWord and Open Office.

To use open a terminal and type:

iconv -f source.code -t destination.code source.file > destination.file

where source.code and destination.code can be UTF8, UTF16, etc. To have a list of all the coded character sets type in a terminal:

iconv -l



This is the GNU-iconv-bin file compiled from source. No dependencies are needed.

Tested with puppy 431 and 420.
