Universal Character Encoding Detector (Python3)


Chardet is a continuation of Mark Pilgrim's excellent original chardet port from C, and Ian Cordasco's charade Python 3-compatible fork. Chardet takes a sequence of bytes in an unknown character encoding, and attempts to determine the encoding.

Supported encodings:
 * Big5, GB2312/GB18030, EUC-TW, HZ-GB-2312, and ISO-2022-CN (Traditional
   and Simplified Chinese)
 * EUC-JP, SHIFT_JIS, and ISO-2022-JP (Japanese)
 * EUC-KR and ISO-2022-KR (Korean)
 * KOI8-R, MacCyrillic, IBM855, IBM866, ISO-8859-5, and windows-1251 (Russian)
 * ISO-8859-2 and windows-1250 (Hungarian)
 * ISO-8859-5 and windows-1251 (Bulgarian)
 * ISO-8859-1 and windows-1252 (Western European languages)
 * ISO-8859-7 and windows-1253 (Greek)
 * ISO-8859-8 and windows-1255 (Visual and Logical Hebrew)
 * TIS-620 (Thai)
 * UTF-32 BE, LE, 3412-ordered, or 2143-ordered (with a BOM)
 * UTF-16 BE or LE (with a BOM)
 * UTF-8 (with or without a BOM)

This library is a port of the auto-detection code in Mozilla.
