iconvircproxy is a proxy for IRC users who want to talk in different character set environments. It is especially suitable for European users who occasionally talk on Japanese channels. It requires a fully UTF-8 compatible IRC client, and can talk in ISO-8859-*, ISO-2022-JP, SHIFT-JIS, and UTF-8 encodings. Encodings can be configured on a channel-by-channel basis, and heuristics are used to determine the encoding of each character of traffic.
