Thanks for your complimentary remarks — they are appreciated.

piconv does use Encode. It's also relatively short: if you ignore the option handling, POD, etc., you're left with probably less than 100 lines of code. So, if you wanted to use that as a starting point to roll your own version, I don't imagine it would be an overwhelmingly difficult task. However, having said that, if this is just a one-off exercise, perhaps something along these lines would suffice:

$ for i in latin/*.html; do > piconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t utf8 $i | \ > perl -pe 's/((?>charset|encoding)=)iso-8859-1/${1}utf-8/gi' - \ > > utf8/`basename $i` > done
