Let us not forget Kermit :-)

It supports conversion to and from Unicode as part of the file transfer
process, as well as in terminal emulation, and also conversion of local
files between Unicode and dozens of other sets. Including CP1252 :-)

And it can do this not only for Unix, but also VMS, VOS, AOS/VS, Plan 9,
OS-9, OS/2, and... Windows.
