Greetings all,

I have a problem with encode converting (in C):
Say, I have a string here, if I print it to stdout, I will got an ascii
encoded string (locale do not effect), but I know that this string is in
actually in another charset and I tried to use the iconv() to convert
the encoding, but it will always return me the same anwser (the ascii
string). How do I do the converting? thx very much!

ps: I also want to know that what is the scheme to identify the mutibyte
string / char (not the C function calls, just the scheme)
