Recodec is a Python (2.2.1 or better) clone of Free `recode', and as such, it converts strings or files between character sets and usages. Version 0.2 is now at http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/%7Epinard/recodec/Recodec.tar.gz. See http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/%7Epinard/recodec/ for a copy of `README'.

User visible changes since last release:
.. `--help' option added, better some documentation than none! .. `--find-subsets' (`-T') option deleted, now a separate program. .. New aliases `q4' and `QNX-4' for `IBM437'.
A few bugs have been corrected. After profiling the test suite, I got a 4x speed-up through quicker alias disambiguation, and also by special casing common cases to avoid finding the shortest path in graph of steps.
