In an internationalized environment, it is often necessary to convert data from one code set to another. The following converter subroutines are supported for this purpose:
|iconv_open||Performs the initialization required to convert characters from the code set specified by the FromCode parameter to the code set specified by the ToCode parameter.|
|iconv||Invokes the converter function using the descriptor obtained from the iconv_open subroutine.|
|iconv_close||Closes the conversion descriptor specified by the cd variable and makes it usable again.|
|ccsidtocs||Returns the code-set name of the corresponding coded character set IDs (CCSID).|
|cstoccsid||Returns the CCSID of the corresponding code-set name.|
