Convert a string to utf8

Hello.

I’m reading a csv file into my application, and when I enconter a
special character like ç, I have a problem, since my database is in
utf-8. Is there a way to convert a string to utf-8?

Yes, use iconv. You’ll need to know the input character encoding, or
give

a try otherwise.
