Sun supports various code conversions among:
UCS-2, UCS-4, UTF-8, UTF-7, UTF-16, SJIS, Japanese EUC, Korean EUC,
Traditional Chinese EUC, BIG5, Simplified EUC,
ISO 8859-1 ~ 10, KOI8-R, ISO-2022-KR, ISO-2022-CN, ISO-2022-TW, ...
as like attached picture in PostScript file since Solaris 2.6. All of them are
available through iconv(1) utility and also iconv(3) APIs. We are also
adding more code conversions like TIS620 and so on at the Solaris 2.7.
