### Description

Read a file in a different encoding and return it as UTF-8 using iconv

### Usage

readAndConvert(filename, encoding = "")


### Arguments

 filename Character variable with path a file with text in encoding encoding Optional character variable with the encoding, if unset via the default empty string value no conversion is attempted.

### Details

The function is an adapted version of the one in the Rcpp Gallery post at https://gallery.rcpp.org/articles/iconv-via-r-header/ which is itself based on https://fishandwhistle.net/post/2021/using-rs-cross-platform-iconv-wrapper-from-cpp11/. It is however worth pointing out that ‘iconv’ results have been seen to vary across operating systems. While it is portable it does not guarantee identical outcomes across implementations: results on Windows have different from those on Unix OSs.

### Value

A character variable with converted file content.
