Encode::Detect::Detector(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Encode::Detect::Detector(3)

Encode::Detect::Detector - Detects the encoding of data

  use Encode::Detect::Detector;
  my $charset = detect($octets);
  my $d = new Encode::Detect::Detector;
  my $charset = $d->getresult;

This module provides an interface to Mozilla's universal charset detector, which detects the charset used to encode data.

Detect the charset used to encode the data in $octets and return the charset's name. Returns undef if the charset cannot be determined with sufficient confidence.

Creates a new "Encode::Detect::Detector" object and returns it.

Provides an additional chunk of data to be examined by the detector. May be called multiple times.
Returns zero on success, nonzero if a memory allocation failed.

Informs the detector that there is no more data to be examined. In many cases, this is necessary in order for the detector to make a decision on the charset.

Resets the detector to its initial state.

Returns the name of the detected charset or "undef" if no charset has (yet) been decided upon. May be called at any time.
