I have a set of templates creating some files for me. All data on my
site is encoded using iso-8859-1. Now I want to save the text in the
file using utf-8. I have tried using iconv, but whenever I have the
require “iconv” statement in my model, there is some error happening in
the model and the model doesn’t get loaded (not sure how to debug that).
What approches to change encoding is there besides iconv?
