    Gaspar Sinai's Unicode editor Yudit ( also comes with a command-line utility called
    "uniconv" which is as easy to use as GNU's iconv. Windows binaries of Yudit
    are now available in addition to the *nix source code packages: see .
    Installing Yudit will take less time than installing Cygwin (installation of Cygwin is equivalent
    to installing a nearly complete Unix subsystem on top of Windows whereas Yudit is just a single program).
    Yudit is also such a useful Unicode editor that it is well worth taking a look at anyway.

    Examples of using both GNU iconv and Yudit uniconv can be viewed at:
