well my man iconv looks like this;
iconv - Convert encoding of given files from one encoding
iconv -f encoding -t encoding inputfile
The iconv program converts the encoding of characters in
inputfile from one coded character set to another. The
result is written to standard output unless otherwise
specified by the --output option.
--from-code, -f encoding
Convert characters from encoding
--to-code, -t encoding
Convert characters to encoding
List known coded character sets
--output, -o file
Specify output file (instead of stdin)
Print progress information.
iconv is written by Ulrich Drepper as part of the GNU C
This man page is written by Joel Klecker
<firstname.lastname@example.org>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system.

One thing i know that works great is;
