CONTENTS

VERSION

$Id: encguess,v 0.1 2015/02/05 10:34:19 dankogai Exp $

SYNOPSIS



  encguess [switches] filename...



    SWITCHES

-h show this message and exit.
-s specify a list of suspect encoding types to test, seperated by either : or ,
-S output a list of all acceptable encoding types that can be used with the -s param
-u suppress display of unidentified types

    EXAMPLES:

o Guess encoding of a file named test.txt, using only the default suspect types.



   encguess test.txt



o Guess the encoding type of a file named test.txt, using the suspect types euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis.



   encguess -s euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test.txt
   encguess -s euc-jp:shiftjis:7bit-jis test.txt



o Guess the encoding type of several files, do not display results for unidentified files.



   encguess -us euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test*.txt



DESCRIPTION

The encoding identification is done by checking one encoding type at a time until all but the right type are eliminated. The set of encoding types to try is defined by the -s parameter and defaults to ascii, utf8 and UTF-16/32 with BOM. This can be overridden by passing one or more encoding types via the -s parameter. If you need to pass in multiple suspect encoding types, use a quoted string with the a space separating each value.
