Support for ut8 to utf16LE conversion in linux kernel


I have a requirement to support conversion of utf8 characters to utf16le characters and vice versa in kernel mode. I found the "iconv" utility to do the same in user mode. Is there an equivalent utility which can be used in kernel mode.

Thanks,
abhiruchi

I'm not a programmer (especially when it comes to kernel programming), but I do know that iconv is actually a function built into glibc. The iconv utility is a front-end for accessing the function.

'man 3 iconv' details how to use the function.
