Hi everyone.

I've just started using libxml2.  I need to find out what encodings are
available in my program.  Looking through the documentation in
libxml-encoding.html I couldn't see any function that would let me do
this.  Is there in fact a way I can list all of the available encodings?

  the default supported natively by libxml2 are:
    - UTF8
    - UTF16
    - ISO-8859-1

Now if compiled with iconv support then you can add the list of encodings
it can handle, the best is (on linux) to use the command line:
gnome:~ -> iconv --list
The following list contain all the coded character sets known.  This does
not necessarily mean that all combinations of these names can be used for
the FROM and TO command line parameters.  One coded character set can be
listed with several different names (aliases).

  437, 500, 500V1, 850, 851, 852, 855, 856, 857, 860, 861, 862, 863, 864, 865,
  866, 869, 874, 904, 1026, 1046, 1047, 8859_1, 8859_2, 8859_3, 8859_4, 8859_5,

  and there is like 5 pages of names of encoding name and aliases supported.
There is no function at the libxml2 API level to return such list, maybe
it's part of iconv API.
