recode eats data

I had a large text file encoded in Windows-1252 on my 770. I wanted to convert
it to UTF-8 so that I could edit it. iconv wasn't up for the job (for some
reason it doesn't support cp1252, although it does support all other cp125x
encodings). recode -l claimed that it did support cp1252, so I ran it on my
file in an xterm:
recode 1252..UTF-8 filename.txt
Instead of recoding, recode truncated my file to 0 size.
Oops, I had forgotten that I got recode from a package I built myself, and that
it doesn't come as a standard package. Sorry about the noise.
Closing. Bug has been marked as INVALID. If problem/bug still exists, please
reopen it with proper comments.
