Projects / recode


The recode library converts files between character sets and usages. 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.

    Release Notes: The name has been changed from 'Free recode' to 'Recode'. The libiconv library is no longer included. A bug wit losing a few characters here and there when recoding big files in the iconv context seems to have been corrected. Installation now uses Python. 'make check' accepts a LIMIT= option for limiting tests to one or a few cases. PO files have been updated from the Translation Project.
