iconv_zh - codeset conversion for Chinese encodings
The table below provides basic information on available Chinese code conversions for iconv and cconv.
The listed names in the table are canonical names. There are aliases, e.g., EUC-CN, zn_CN.euc, and so on for GB2312, that are also supported.
Available iconv and cconv conversions in the current system can be obtained by running iconv -l as described in the iconv(1) manual page.
Additional information on the mappings between canonical names and supported aliases with optional variant levels, refer to alias(5) manual page and also /usr/lib/iconv/alias file.
