ChsDet is a Charset Detector - as the name says - is a stand alone executable module for automatic charset / encoding detection of a given text or file.
ChsDet can be useful for internationalisation support in multilingual applications such as web-script editors or Unicode editors.
Given input buffer will be analysed to guess used encoding. The result - charset name or codepage id - can be used as control parameter for charset conversion procedure. Charset Detector can be compiled (and hopefully used:) for MS Windows (as dll - dynamic link library) using Delphi or Free Pascal or Linux using Delphi/Kylix.
Based on Mozilla's i18n component.
Version 0.2 released.
Charset Detector doesn't need any external components.
As result you will get guessed charset as MS Windows Code Page id and GNU charset canonical name.
Charset Detector is open source project and distributed under Lesser GPL.
Pseudo codepage. Charset Detector was unable to guess encoding.
