Convert filenames from iso-8859-1 to utf-8

      No Comments on Convert filenames from iso-8859-1 to utf-8

Just as you can convert entire files from one charset to another, you can convert the filenames. For example:

convmv -f iso-8859-15 -t utf-8 -r .

would recursively convert all files in the current directory from iso-8859-1 charset into utf-8. Well, not exactly. To finally rename the files you need the --notest flag. Otherwise convmv will perform a dry run without any changes.
