      This is 7.1.000. I recommend the updated Vim and gvim compiled by Steve
      Hall (currently 7.1.293), obtainable from
      . It has +iconv/dyn, its full ":version" text can be seen by clicking on
      the word "Notes" or the clipboard-like icon next to the version number
      on that same page.

      Libiconv 1.9.2 is available precompiled from GnuWin32 from the page
      http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libiconv.htm . This is one
      sub-sub-level above what you already have -- you might try using this
      until or unless you succeed to get (or make) a later version. Since
      Steve Hall's builds include +iconv/dyn and the "Compilation" and
      "Linking" parts of its ":version" text mention no iconv version, I
      suppose upgrading iconv (if and when) means simply dropping the DLL over
      the former version (in the PATH or in $VIMRUNTIME). I expect, though,
      that upgrading Vim (see above) will be more important than upgrading iconv.

      Libiconv 1.12 is distributed in source form at
      http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/libiconv/libiconv-1.12.tar.gz but I suppose
      these sources are meant primarily for Unix -- I don't know what
      adaptations (if any) might be necessary to build a Windows DLL from them.

      Best regards,
      The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity
      -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
