34 <para>The <application>Recode</application> package contains a program for
35 converting text between character sets, and a library that exposes
36 this functionality to other applications. Note that the same functionality
37 (but with different API) is provided by <command>iconv</command>, which is
38 installed in LFS as a part of <application>Glibc</application>.</para>
