Re: I am testing convmv and need some example non-utf-8 filenames.

and trying all sorts of filenames but was unable to get conmv
to recognize and convert them in my scripts.

So, can anyone here provide me some sample filenames I can try?

Why not use convmv to convert some files *from* utf8 to some other
charset first?  For example,

$ touch /tmp/æ-convmv-test
$ convmv --notest -f utf8 -t iso8859-1 /tmp/æ-convmv-test Your Perl version has fleas #37757 #49830 mv "/tmp/æ-convmv-test" "/tmp/?-convmv-test"
Ready!

To convert it back again:

$ convmv --notest -t utf8 -f iso8859-1 /tmp/*-convmv-test Your Perl version has fleas #37757 #49830 mv "/tmp/?-convmv-test" "/tmp/æ-convmv-test"
Ready!
Oh, yeah! never crossed my mind! Geez, numbskull that I am!

Thanks!
Dan
