    Command:

    iconv_open

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <iconv.h>
    
           iconv_t iconv_open(const char *tocode, const char *fromcode);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  iconv_open()  function  allocates a conversion descriptor suitable
           for converting byte sequences from character encoding fromcode to char-
           acter encoding tocode.
    
           The values permitted for fromcode and tocode and the supported combina-
           tions are system-dependent.  For the GNU C library, the permitted  val-
           ues are listed by the iconv --list command, and all combinations of the
           listed values are supported.  Furthermore the GNU C library and the GNU
           libiconv library support the following two suffixes:
    
           //TRANSLIT
                  When the string "//TRANSLIT" is appended to tocode, translitera-
                  tion is activated.  This means that when a character  cannot  be
                  represented  in the target character set, it can be approximated
                  through one or several similarly looking characters.
    
           //IGNORE
                  When the string "//IGNORE" is  appended  to  tocode,  characters
                  that  cannot  be represented in the target character set will be
                  silently discarded.
    
           The resulting conversion descriptor can be used with iconv(3) any  num-
           ber of times.  It remains valid until deallocated using iconv_close(3).
    
           A conversion descriptor contains a conversion  state.   After  creation
           using  iconv_open(), the state is in the initial state.  Using iconv(3)
           modifies the descriptor's conversion state.  (This implies that a  con-
           version descriptor can not be used in multiple threads simultaneously.)
           To bring the state back to the initial state, use iconv(3) with NULL as
           inbuf argument.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           The  iconv_open()  function  returns  a  freshly  allocated  conversion
           descriptor.  In case of error, it sets errno and returns  (iconv_t) -1.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           The following error can occur, among others:
    
           EINVAL The  conversion  from fromcode to tocode is not supported by the
                  implementation.
    
    
    

    VERSIONS

           This function is available in glibc since version 2.1.
