piconv is perl version of iconv, a character encoding converter widely available for various Unixen today. This script was primarily a technology demonstrator for Perl 5.8.0, but you can use piconv in the place of iconv for virtually any case.
piconv converts the character encoding of either STDIN or files specified in the argument and prints out to STDOUT.
Here is the list of options. Some options can be in short format (-f) or long (--from) one.
Therefore, when both -f and -t are omitted, piconv just acts like cat.
You should use this option if you are using UTF-16 and others which linefeed is not $/.
Like the -D option, this is also for Encode hackers.
