Encoding: Convert between character sets with iconv


Using a linux shell command called iconv you can convert content of a file from one encoding to another.

If you know exactly what format its in:

iconv --from-code=LATIN1 --to-code=UTF8 -c --output=~/test/xml/input_clean.xml ~/test/xml/input.xml

The "-c" option tells the program to omit unmappable characters. Otherwise it will stop at the first unmappable character it encounters.
