 1. copy the lines below to test2.cs

 "UTF-16le" as target - so it's correct to throw an error (of course 
 it should throw an exception and not g_assert_not_reached ()).
 MCS/the class library must determine the encoding of the input file
 and then make sure that iconv_open() gets the correct source 
 encoding (iso-8859-1 in this case).
+------- Additional Comments From lupus@ximian.com  2002-08-27 13:05 -------
+Moving to mcs: mcs needs to validate the source files for the correct
+encoding (maybe starting with utf8 and then falling back to latin1 or
+the default encoding for the locale...).
