It's hard to understand what you mean.  What do you mean by
"apply this command to ... file"?  Does it mean that you
give the file name to call-process as INFILE argument?  But,
how does it result in "encode the chinese-gbk characters to
japanese-shift-jis"?  Emacs doesn't detect the encoding of
INFILE.  So how does Emacs know about `japanese-shift-jis'
first of all?

And first of all, CVS Emacs doesn't have chinese-gbk coding
system.  Are you talking about the behavior of

Encodings here are just examples; I should use them as
encoding A and B.  And my opinion is wrong, I don't know
all the real behavior of `call-process', I thought arguments
will be encoded to the file encoding.
