+* LibIconv-1.9.2 for Windows *
+What is it?
+LibIconv: convert between character encodings
+LibIconv converts from one character encoding to another through Unicode
+conversion (see Web page for full list of supported encodings). It has
+also limited support for transliteration, i.e. when a character cannot be
+represented in the target character set, it is approximated through one
+or several similar looking characters. It is useful if your application
+needs to support multiple character encodings, but that support lacks from
+your system.
+- Libiconv-1 is in Libiconv-1.7
+- MS-Windows 95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / XP with msvcrt.dll
+- if msvcrt.dll is not in your Windows/System folder, get it from
+ Microsoft <;en-us;259403">
+ or by installing Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher
+ <>- libgw32c <> (for developing with LibIconv library)
+- Bugs and questions on this MS-Windows port:
+Package Availability
+- in:
+The package has been compiled with GNU auto-tools, GNU make, and Mingw
+(GCC for MS-Windows). Any differences from the original sources are given
+in libiconv-1.9.2-1-GnuWin32.diffs in Libraries needed
+for compilation can be found at the lines starting with 'LIBS = ' in the
+Makefiles. Usually, these are standard libraries provided with Mingw, or
+libraries from the package itself; 'gw32c' refers to the libgw32c package,
+which provides MS-Windows substitutes or stubs for functions normally found in
+Unix. For more information, see:
