   - what is it?
     - `recode' converts files between character sets and usages. When
        exact transliterations are not possible, it may get rid of the
        offending characters or fall back on approximations. This
        program recognizes or produces nearly 150 different character
        sets and is able to transliterate files between almost any pair.
        Most RFC 1345 character sets are supported.
