You never told us what the problem actually is

No, C.ASCII is only supported by Cygwin as far as I know.  It works under
glibc only by virtue of being an unknown locale (so that you end up using
the default, which is C), but it's not portable.

Does that mean there's no way to explicitly specify plain ASCII encoding? Or does it mean you have to use iso-8859-whatever-it-is or one of the codepage based names?

C defaults to ASCII and there's no way to change it (I did read the followup, this is just to clarify).
