.SH "NAME"
iconv - Convert encoding of given files from one encoding to another
.SH "SYNOPSIS"
iconv \fB\-f\fR \fIencoding\fR [\fB\-t\fR \fIencoding\fR] \fI[inputfile]\fR...
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
The \fBiconv\fR program converts the encoding of characters in
\fIinputfile\fR, or from the standard input if no filename is specified,
from one coded character set to another. The result is
written to standard output unless otherwise specified by the
\fB\-\-output\fR option.
.TP
\fB\-\-from\-code\fR, \fB\-f\fR \fIencoding\fR
Convert characters from \fIencoding\fR.
.TP
\fB\-\-to\-code\fR, \fB\-t\fR \fIencoding\fR
Convert characters to \fIencoding\fR. If not specified the 
encoding corresponding to the current locale is used.
.TP
\fB\-\-list\fR, \fB\-l\fR
List known coded character sets.
.TP
\fB\-c\fR
Omit invalid characters from output.
.TP
\fB\-\-output\fR, \fB\-o\fR \fIfile\fR
Specify output file (instead of stdout).
.TP
\fB\-\-silent\fR, \fB\-s\fR
Suppress warnings, but not errors.
.TP
\fB\-\-verbose\fR
Print progress information.
.TP
\fB\-\-help\fR, \fB\-?\fR
Give help list.
.TP
\fB\-\-usage\fR
Give a short usage message.
.TP
\fB\-\-version\fR, \fB\-V\fR
Print program version.
.SH ENCODINGS
The values permitted for \fI\-\-from\-code\fP and \fI\-\-to\-code\fP can be listed
by the \fBiconv \-\-list\fP command, and all combinations of the listed values are
supported. Furthermore the following two suffixes are supported:
.TP
//TRANSLIT
When the string "//TRANSLIT" is appended to \fI\-\-to\-code\fP, transliteration
is activated.
This means that when a character cannot be represented in the
target character set, it can be approximated through one or several
similarly looking characters.
.TP
//IGNORE
When the string "//IGNORE" is appended to \fI\-\-to\-code\fP, characters that
cannot be represented in the target character set will be silently discarded.

.SH "AUTHOR"
\fIiconv\fR was written by Ulrich Drepper as part of the GNU C Library.
.PP
This man page was written by Joel Klecker <espy@debian.org>,
for the Debian GNU/Linux system.
