Hah! Nice. I had guessed that ISO-8859 was the spec for EUC-JP, but I was way

Cheers. Partly, I am just trying to offer another option here. Fiddling with
terminal character encodings seems really annoying, so I figured someone here
might get value out of a method capable of transparently handling euc-jp files
without having to muck with it every time.

transparently convert encodings for us...
