[maemo-users] [maemo-users] No windows-1252 support?

Sometimes I get to edit text files encoded in Windows-1252 (a Latin-1
variant commonly used on Windows systems).  I was very surprised when I
discovered that iconv on the 770 does not support this encoding.

  iconv -l

lists a bunch of names in the 125x series, except for 1252.  I suppose
I'd have to recompile libc6 to get cp1252 support?

I've compiled vim 7.0 with the +encodings feature, but it uses the
system iconv library, so it doesn't support cp1252 either.

What is somewhat more "fun": recode is present on the 770, and recode -l
claims to support 1252, but

  recode 1252..UTF-8 filename.txt

instead of recoding the text, erases it completely.  Bug filed:
