It is possible.
We'll need some more info:
please add your distro & version to your profile.
What is the src/destination of the files?
Which langs would you prefer, if any?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

My first question to you is as to why you end your sentences with two periods or even a single period then alternate closing punctuation?

I would suggest that you read the next two links to help yourself to aid us in helping you;

There's that fascinating tool out there. It's called a search engine.
Comes in a variety of flavours. One example for you below; as an
inspiration to try and use it more!

first if u are newbie to linux, learn some linux beginner books to know about it first then go on to learn about the conversion of utf8 to ascii format. U cant just jump directy to your desired area without learning about the os you are using to do so.
There are many free books availble on the net, alternatively you can buy some of them too,
use ur preferred search engine to search for the titles..

I really hope you are not expecting that one of us is going to do your homework

If after researching and doing your work you have doubts or you need explanations about some concept or any help, we will gladly help you to fix or improve your code, but we ain't doing your job for you.
