Subject: Iconv and old codepages


How many codepages does in-musl iconv supports?
Currently I'm trying converting from "utf8" to "cp1251" and iconv()
only gives me a number of "*"'s matching the utf8 input. Is this
correct behavior and iconv() currently does not support non-UTF legacy
codepages? Even so, I still see many of them in src/locale/codepages.h
The (dirty) test program attached.

I also noticed alternative libs thread and corresponding wiki page.
Does someone know lightweight iconv replacement as a temporary measure
(other than libiconv for example)?
