GNU Iconv is a free software maintained and developped by the GNU project and the Free Software Foundation. ICONV allows converting files from encoding to encoding, and provide a large set of encoding.
This is really helpfull when you want to port batch scripts between platforms because for exemple, GNU/Linux uses UTF-8 charset whereas WINDOWS uses a various set of codepages, as CP863 for western europe.
Iconv is distributed as a free software by the GNU project, and licensed under the terms of the GNU GPLv3
