ICONVLIST(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					      ICONVLIST(3)

iconvlist -- retrieving a list of character encodings supported by iconv(3)
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
#include <iconv.h> void iconvlist(int (*do_one)(unsigned int *count, const char * const *names, void *arg), void *arg);
The iconvlist() function obtains a list of character encodings that are supported by the iconv(3) call. The do_one() callback function will be called, where the count argument will be set to the number of the encoding names found, the names argument will be the list of the sup- ported encoding names and the arg argument will be the arg argument of the iconvlist() function. This argument can be used to interchange custom data between the caller of iconvlist() and the callback function. If an error occurs, names will be NULL when calling do_one().
__iconv_free_list(3), __iconv_get_list(3), iconv(3)
The iconvlist function is a non-standard extension, which appeared in the GNU implementation and was adopted in FreeBSD 9.0 for compatibil- ity's sake.
