iwlist wlo1 scan | grep ESSID inside a script.
It displays French characters in the following format
\xC3\x89 for É and
\xC3\xA9 for é.
I'm not sure what this format is called. I tried using an answer for converting unicode
echo -ne '\xC3\xA9' | iconv -f utf-16be but it converted to
What is the official name for this format and how can I convert it in bash?
