PaulIf it would help, I could make a very crude Rebol command line script to read a file, guess the encoding and print the encoding. It would give a crude way to compare the results against your current routine.Rebol is easy to download and doesn't require installation but is 32-bit only so the macOS version won't run on macOS Catalina.PeterPS Once again sorry for the top posting.

I'm not sure how it compares with your current function in terms of accuracy. It is being used by a company which does a lot of text processing. (Though I don't know if that is a good reccomendation or not). The method I used is explained in the brief documentation -http://www.rebol.org/documentation.r?script=str-enc-utils.r]. The rules could be used to create a LiveCode function.PeterPS Sorry for top posting, I'm replying from a mobile app.Peter,Thank you. While I would have loved to see this as a LC script for comparison to my own routine, this is the sort of replies I was looking for. Other routines I could compare mine to for seeking possible improvements in my own code._______________________________________________use-livecode mailing listuse-livecode at lists.runrev.comPlease visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences:http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
