in reply to string? Or binary garbage?

It looks like a good place to start would be Lingua::Identify, which 'knows' 26 languages so far. I imagine that the IPTC headers should be short enough that you could check them whole, as I expect a larger sample would give more confidence, but some experimenting may be in order on that point.

I'd like to be able to assign to an luser

    And if you have any problem with it, you can always bug the author :-) Why don't you send him some examples so that he can tell you if Lingua::Identify is the right tool for that? :-) I'm pretty sure he'd like to help O:-)

    It is possible that it isn't, but it doesn't hurt trying, and L::I hasn't reached a final version yet, so maybe there's place for something like that. Bug the author!! :-) Definitely :-)
