NAME
       encguess	- guess	character encodings of files

VERSION
       $Id: encguess,v 0.2 2016/08/04 03:15:58 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.
