Detailed Description

An output stream buffer that translates between character encodings.

The iconv library is used to do the real work.

Users should not normally instantiate this class directly; instead see IConvStream for a higher-level interface to character conversion.

This class will still work if iconv is not supported on the build machine, though in this case it will simply pass data through without performing any translations.
