Blergh. Last time I ran iconv on a large file (a Wikipedia
SQL dump), it seemed like it wanted to slurp the whole file
into RAM, then transform it and output it. Not nice when the
file is multiple-100MB.
Someone needs to rewrite iconv(1) as a more stream-oriented
filter before doing what you suggest.
Maybe I should go log a bug against this...
