Re: Replacement for GNU recode?
It is not replacement to GNU recode, just same name :)
So, if I put freeware license, then it means that program is freeware. Nothing more.
By the way, I try to change program's name to recode-ru, is this ok to community?

Re: Replacement for GNU recode?
Looking at the code of this recode, it's obvious that it's not meant as a replacement of GNU recode, since it has a very limitad scope. It pretends to be faster, so if you need to recode gigabytes of Russian texts on a 386 machine with very fast I/O, then this program is for you, otherwise GNU recode is a better solution :-)

Seriously, this hack should probably be dropped from Freshmeat. It doesn't have any license whatsoever, so it cannot be called freeware.

Replacement for GNU recode?
There's already an old GNU program called <a
href="">recode that does something similar.&nbsp;
Unless this new recode is meant as a replacement of the old one, perhaps another name would be
more appropriate.
