Description Eugene Kanter 2002-07-16 14:39:01 EDT
Description of Problem:

UTF-16 encoded text usually has BOM which helps recognize between UTF-16LE abd

iconv may be enhanced to output BOM if asked.
Comment 1 Eugene Kanter 2002-08-14 20:56:09 EDT
Looks like iconv already produces UTF16 with the appropriate BOM.
