Re: Alternative to iconv

Thanks Eric, I had previously ran the setup utility and searched for iconv and found only the libraries (libiconv and libiconv2). Also, libiconv2 was pre-installed but I was still getting "command not found" when I attempted to run iconv. I went ahead and installed the libiconv package in addition to libiconv2 and it works now... maybe a note in the package description that libiconv2 does not include the executable?

Thanks again,

Hi all,

I have a large csv file (1.5GB) that I need to convert from UTF-16 to
UTF-8 however it appears iconv is not currently included in cygwin.

Huh? iconv is too part of cygwin:

$ cygcheck -p iconv\\.exe
Found 3 matches for iconv\.exe
libiconv/libiconv-1.13.1-1 GNU character set conversion library and utilities
libiconv/libiconv-1.13.1-2 GNU character set conversion library and utilities
libiconv/libiconv-1.14-1 GNU character set conversion library and utilities

Maybe you just need to rerun setup.exe and install the libiconv package, if you don't already have it present on your machine.
