Uh-oh, I am reading my buzzwords:

The only thing I can offer so far, is which
is a page about Gaspar Sinai's Yudit package which I consider the best
in contemporary Unicode support on Unix. My complete Unicode-HOWTO is
still taking a couple more weeks.

Yudit contains converter classes for EUC_JP, EUC_KR and others that
can be included in other programs, accessed interactively through
Yudit's encoding menu or from the shell through its uniconv command.

I am currently not using any HP-UX machines. Is there anything
special to consider with regard to HP-UX?
