       iconvconfig - create iconv module configuration cache


       iconvconfig [options] [directory]...


       The  iconv(3)  function  internally  uses gconv modules to convert to and from a character
       set.  A configuration file is used to determine  the  needed  modules  for  a  conversion.
       Loading  and parsing such a configuration file would slow down programs that use iconv(3),
       so a caching mechanism is employed.

       The iconvconfig program reads iconv module configuration files and writes  a  fast-loading
       gconv  module configuration cache file.  In addition to the system provided gconv modules,
       the user can specify  custom  gconv  module  directories  with  the  environment  variable
       GCONV_PATH.  However, iconv module configuration caching is used only when the environment
       variable GCONV_PATH is not set.


              Do not search the system default gconv directory, only the directories provided  on
              the command line.

       -o outputfile, --output=outputfile
              Use outputfile for output instead of the system default cache location.

              Set  the  prefix  to  be  prepended to the system pathnames.  See FILES, below.  By
              default, the prefix is  empty.   Setting  the  prefix  to  foo,  the  gconv  module
              configuration  would  be  read  from  foo/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules and the cache
              would be written to foo/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache.
