See also Text.ConvertToTextEncoding function.

This functionality needs libiconv. On macOS, iOS and Linux we try to load the library coming with the OS. If you use Windows or like to use a custom library, please use Plugin.LoadIconvLibrary function to load it before calling this function.
Without iconv library, only a minimum functionality is done by plugin directly to keep basic functionality working.

Examples

Convert from nordic:

MBS( "Text.ConvertFromTextEncoding"; "48656C6C6F209B9D"; "CP865" )

Example result: "Hello øØ"
