recode should be more verbose

Bug #286863 reported by Pierre on 2008-10-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
recode (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: recode

$ LC_ALL=C recode -v mac..latin9 file
Request: macintosh/CR..:libiconv:..ISO-8859-15
Shrunk to: macintosh/CR..ISO-8859-15
Recoding file... failed: Invalid input in step `macintosh..ISO-8859-15'

1/ I don't see what is invalid in my file...

2/ recode should be able to tell me which character or line has a problem. I read all the options list and there doesn't seem to be something like this.
