binary vs. text?

Does anyone have a sure fire way to determine if a file is binary or  
text?

I have need to create an import utility that will import data from a  
text file (csv, tab-delimited, etc) into a database, but I'd like to  
check the file before doing anything else just to make sure it is in  
fact text and not binary.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Chris
