Description Marius Gedminas (reporter) 2006-09-19 11:56:06 UTC
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.
