Hello all,

working on a rather "large, collaborative" LaTeX project 
(read: two people working on the dissertation of one of them) 
on Windows and Macs and having no GNU recode immediatly avail-
able I felt the need for something like a poor man's recode 
replacement to translate between different LaTeX input charac-
ter encodings. 

This is exactly what calie.py does. The only basic catch (or 
feature, depending on your point of view) is that calie needs 
certain files of an existing LaTeX distribution (very few 
though).

There's not much more to be said, except to refer to the doc 
string of calie.py available here:

Any-comments-welcome'ly,

Dinu
