( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Maybe Encode::Guess or Encode::Detect can help.
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Encode; use Encode::Guess; my $decoder = guess_encoding($content); print "UTF-8" if ref($decoder) eq 'Encode::utf8'; __END__
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Encode::Detect::Detector; my $octets = "\x{4f60}\x{597d}\x{4e16}\x{754c}"; my $charset = Encode::Detect::Detector::detect($octets); print "$charset\n"; $octets = "\x82\xb7\x82\xb2\x82\xa2\x82\xcc\x82\xdd\x82\xc2"; $charset = Encode::Detect::Detector::detect($octets); print "$charset\n"; $octets = "\x{805a}\x{5408}\x{6216}\x{8be6}\x{7ec6}"; $charset = Encode::Detect::Detector::detect($octets); print "$charset\n";

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
