Suffixes like //TRANSLIT and //IGNORE are GNU libiconv extensions while iconv_open() uses OS/2 native Unicode functions (UniCreateUconvObject? and friends). Unfortunately, these functions don't provide functionality assumed by //TRANSLIT (transliterate characters missing in the target code page by approximating them with similarly looking ones) and //IGNORE (silently discard missing characters). So in order to have this functionality one has to port GNI libiconv to OS/2 (if not already done).
