recode: A library to convert between character sets and usages1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

The library recognises or produces nearly 150 different character sets and is able to transliterate files between almost any pair. When exact transliteration are not possible, it may get rid of the offending characters or fall back on approximations. Most RFC 1345 character sets are supported. The 'recode' program is a handy front-end to the library.
