Binary detector fooled by emoji #4

Create the following file:

# test.rb
%w[馃敟 馃尪]

This package will prevent opening that Ruby file, probably because the emojis are in such a high character range

Seems like this is a known bug in isbinaryfile package gjtorikian/isBinaryFile#22 (comment)

I have switched to VS Code few years ago and supporting this extension is not a priority for me. I recently started using emojis in text more frequently so I feel your pain.
If they solve it in the lib I will release new version.
