    [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
    [Corion]: But as "ansi" (Latin-1?) is a single-byte encoding, any file is a valid ANSI file
