         piconv [-f from_encoding] [-t to_encoding] [-s string] [files...]
         piconv -l
         piconv [-C N|-c|-p]

       piconv is perl version of iconv, a character encoding con­
       verter widely available for various Unixen today.  This
       script was primarily a technology demonstrator for Perl
       5.8.0, but you can use piconv in the place of iconv for
       virtually any case.

       piconv converts the character encoding of either STDIN or
       files specified in the argument and prints out to STDOUT.

       Here is the list of options.  Each option can be in short
       format (-f) or long (--from).

       -f,--from from_encoding
           Specifies the encoding you are converting from.
           Unlike iconv, this option can be omitted.  In such
           cases, the current locale is used.

       -t,--to to_encoding
           Specifies the encoding you are converting to.  Unlike
           iconv, this option can be omitted.  In such cases, the
           current locale is used.

           Therefore, when both -f and -t are omitted, piconv
           just acts like cat.

       -s,--string string
           uses string instead of file for the source of text.

           Lists all available encodings, one per line, in case-
           insensitive order.  Note that only the canonical names
           are listed; many aliases exist.  For example, the
           names are case-insensitive, and many standard and com­
           mon aliases work, such as "latin1" for "ISO-8859-1",
           or "ibm850" instead of "cp850", or "winlatin1" for
           "cp1252".  See Encode::Supported for a full discus­

       -C,--check N
           Check the validity of the stream if N = 1.  When N =
           -1, something interesting happens when it encounters
           an invalid character.
           Available schemes are as follows:

               Uses Encode::from_to for conversion.  This is the

               Input strings are decode()d then encode()d.  A
               straight two-step implementation.

               The new perlIO layer is used.  NI-S' favorite.

           Like the -D option, this is also for Encode hackers.
