iconv_ko - codeset conversion for Korean encodings
The table below provides basic information on available Korean codeset code conversions.
The listed names in the table are canonical names. There are aliases, e.g., Wansung, eucKR, and such for EUC-KR, that are also supported. For the supported aliases, please refer to "iconv -l" output.
For any characters that exist and are valid in fromcode that do not exist in tocode of any of the above codesets, each of such characters will be converted into '?' (0x3f) as a non-identical code conversion. If the tocode is a Unicode encoding, U+FFFD (replacement character) will be used instead.
