6 Generic character set conversion

The Iconv functions allow conversion among character set encodings, (libc)Conversion. This API is available only if, at package configuration time, it was enabled with the --with-iconv option to the configure script.

The availability of the Iconv API can be tested at run–time with the function vicare-built-with-iconv-enabled from (vicare) ((vicare-scheme)vicare-built-with-iconv-enabled), and at expand–time with the clause iconv-enabled of cond-expand from SRFI-0 (see iconv-enabled).
