NAME ^

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

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Encode::Detect::Detector;
  my $charset = detect($octets);

  my $d = new Encode::Detect::Detector;
  $d->handle($octets);
  $d->handle($more_octets);
  $d->end;
  my $charset = $d->getresult;

DESCRIPTION ^

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

METHODS ^

$charset = Encode::Detect::Detector->detect($octets)

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.

$d = Encode::Detect::Detector->new()

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

$d->handle($octets)

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.

$d->eof

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.

$d->reset

Resets the detector to its initial state.

$d->getresult

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