You may wish to consider using iconv along with gawk, and letting iconv
convert the data from CP1250 to UTF-8 or something else more suitable
for gawk on Linux.

The attached "filenc.awk" script can automate the conversion process. Just add an '::encoding' suffix to the foreign input file arguments, and they will be converted to the current locale before processing.

Change this to:

$ gawk -i filenc -f demo1.awk test.txt::cp1252

It works on my Windows10/Cygwin64 platform. And should work on Linux platforms with iconv installed.

Hope this help. Regards.
