in thread Don't Retitle This Node

After reading the node several times over, and proably missing the point mostly cause of a stress at work distracting me ;), I tend to agree with tye on several points, esp. needing guestbook in the title and not trusting that others will read the node before voting keep/edit/delete, and will admit this consideration was either a complete mistake or had too many mistakes (thereby meaning I wasn't careful enough). I shall strive to be more careful in my future considerations.

[1nickt]: Yaerox probably best to whip up an SSCCE demonstrating the failure in what you have now and post to SoPW as a question.
[Corion]: Yaerox: That's a somewhat hard problem. Encode solves the conversion part, but for guessing what encoding a file is in, that's the hard part
[Corion]: Yaerox: There is Encode::Guess, but that needs a limited set of inputs, and it also cannot handle multiple single-byte encodings
[Corion]: If you have a BOM, that's a really easy way to recognize UTF-8. Otherwise, you can try to decode a file from UTF-8, and if that works OK and doesn't crash, most likely the file was valid UTF-8
