Description

libchardet is based on Mozilla Universal Charset Detector library and, detects the character set used to encode data.

Original code was writed by Netscape Communications Corporation, Techniques used by universalchardet are described at <http://www-archive.mozilla.org/projects/intl/UniversalCharsetDetection.html>.

libchardet see also John Gardiner Myers's Encode-Detect-1.01 perl module, and added C wrapping API, and library build environment with libtool.

From 1.0.5, libchardet was reflected single-byte charset detection confidence algorithm of uchardet and new language models. (Arabic, Danish, Esperanto, German, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese)

From 1.0.6, bom members have been added to the DetectObj structure. The value of the bom member is 1, which means that it has been detected as a BOM. Support for bom member can be determined by the existence of the CHARDET_BOM_CHECK constant. See example below.

Sample Codes

       #include <chardet.h>

       int main (void) {
            DetectObj *obj;

            if ( (obj = detect_obj_init ()) == NULL ) {
                 fprintf (stderr, "Memory Allocation failed\n");
                 return CHARDET_MEM_ALLOCATED_FAIL;
            }

            switch (detect (str, &obj))
       #else
            // from 1.0.5
