CSV to UTF8 Converter
This is a simple java app that was lying around on my hard drive for years. Recently I came across a use case for it when a customer was unable to export csv files with utf8 encoding (You probably can guess the spreadsheet application they use... ;-)). I didn't bother to rewrite it, so here it is. It runs with java 1.6 and should with 1.7 too.
The gui is very simple and should be self-explanatory.
Windows related problems
If you start the app via double click in the windows explorer you may get an error message stating "Main class not found". Because I don't use windows you will have to search for a solution yourself.
However if you start it from the command line using java -jar ... it runs even on windows. ;-)
