    MoinMoin - file encoding conversion

    @copyright: 2005 by Thomas Waldmann (MoinMoin:ThomasWaldmann)
    @license: GNU GPL, see COPYING for details.

    Convert data in encoding src_enc to encoding dst_enc, both specified
    on command line. Data is read from standard input and written to
    standard output.


    ./ src_enc dst_enc < src  > dst


    # Using non utf-8 editor to edit utf-8 file:

    # Make a working copy using iso-8859-1 encoding
    ./ utf-8 iso-8859-1 < de.po > de-iso1.po

    # Use non-utf8 editor
    $EDITOR de-iso1.po

    # Recode back to utf-8
    ./ iso-8859-1 utf-8 < de-iso1.po > de-utf8.po

    # Review changes and replace original if everything is ok
    diff de.po de-utf8.po | less
    mv de-utf8.po de.po
