gauche-cesconv - convert text from one character encoding scheme to another
[ -h] [-f encoding]
[-t encoding] [ -o outfile]
command is a program to convert text from one
character encoding scheme (CES) to another, using Gauche's character
conversion module. Hence the supported character sets are the same as
Gauche's. See the info document of Gauche for more details.
There are other commands that provide the same functionality and more, such as
iconv(1) or nkf(1), but they are not universally available by default. This
command is provided for Gauche's external packages to ease the installation
and configuration process; for those packages, it is certain that
gauche-cesconv is available, so they don't need to check availability of iconv

gauche´s native CES is used.
