Thought I had the Apache Portable Runtime project listed on the
alternatives page.  Will update that.
APR has a version of iconv.

BSD systems have their own implementations of iconv.  Haven't found a
standalone version.  There may be some code in obase (listed on wiki).
There's mention of a BSD licensed libiconv ( ) as part of Citrus (which was
also supposed to have a gettext alternative).  The web page on Citrus is at but I haven't found the source code for the
project.  ICU ( provides uconv instead of
iconv.  On Windows, they typically use GNU libiconv since iconv isn't part
of the C runtime library.

If anyone thinks these (or possibly some other alternatives) are useful, I
can add the links for them to the wiki.  Please let me know if they any of
them don't appear too bloated and would be worth adding.
