    Could be. I'm afraid I probably mistook the asker's goal; yesterday I
    had to do exactly the same thing - move data between SQLServer and SAS -
    but it was batch files so iconv works great. I guess he wants to embed
    some code, though, so maybe batch processing won't do.

    Anyway the secret purpose is to spread the *nix environment to windows
    via cygwin. ;)
