cvtenc - file encoding converter
cvtenc [-Encoding encoding] [-EscapeIn yes|NO] [-EscapeOut yes|NO]
Converts a file encoded in a specified or default non-unicode encoding
to unicode, or, if the file is already in unicode, converts it to a
specified or default non-unicode encoding. The converted text is
printed to standard out.
Specify non-unicode encoding to be used. The direction of
conversion depends on whether the file given as input is recognized
as unicode (from the higher order bytes). To get a list of
available encodings, enter "list" for the encoding. If this is not
specified, the default encoding for the current locale is used.
Specify ’-EscapeIn YES’ (the default is ’NO’) to parse the input
for \u escape sequences (as in property lists).
Specify ’-EscapeOut YES’ (the default is ’NO’) to generate \u
escape sequences (as in property lists) in the output. Note, this
might produce unexpected results for some encodings.
