PHP iconv

PHP original manual for iconv [ show | php.net ]

iconv

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.5, PHP 5)

iconvConvert string to requested character encoding

Description

string iconv ( string $in_charset , string $out_charset , string $str )

Performs a character set conversion on the string str from in_charset to out_charset .

Parameters

in_charset

The input charset.

out_charset

The output charset.

If you append the string //TRANSLIT to out_charset transliteration is activated. This means that when a character can't be represented in the target charset, it can be approximated through one or several similarly looking characters. If you append the string //IGNORE, characters that cannot be represented in the target charset are silently discarded. Otherwise, str is cut from the first illegal character.

str

The string to be converted.

Return Values

Returns the converted string or FALSE on failure.
