Projects / libLatin1


libLatin1 is a small library that converts a number of ASCII-based character encodings into Latin1 (or ASCII and windows-1252). Conversion may be strict or sloppy--letters may be 'unaccented' (e.g., a with acute => a) or transliterated (e.g., double lower quotation mark => double quotation mark). It's more convenient than iconv, recode, or ICU if you're stuck with either ASCII, Latin1, or windows-1252. It's faster in unaccenting (for the supported encodings) then unacc, because it works on 8-bit characters.
