iconvconfig [options] [directory]...
The iconv(3) function internally uses gconv modules to convert to and from a character set. A configuration file is used to determine the needed modules for a conversion. Loading and parsing such a configuration file would slow down programs that use iconv(3), so a caching mechanism is employed.
The iconvconfig program reads iconv module configuration files and writes a fast-loading gconv module configuration cache file.
In addition to the system provided gconv modules, the user can specify custom gconv module directories with the environment variable GCONV_PATH. However, iconv module configuration caching is used only when the environment variable GCONV_PATH is not set.
Zero on success, non-zero on errors.
