· Guess encoding of a file named “test.txt”, using only the default
suspect types.

encguess test.txt

· Guess the encoding type of a file named “test.txt”, using the suspect
types “euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis”.

encguess -s euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test.txt
encguess -s euc-jp:shiftjis:7bit-jis test.txt

· Guess the encoding type of several files, do not display results for
unidentified files.

encguess -us euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test*.txt


The encoding identification is done by checking one encoding type at a
time until all but the right type are eliminated. The set of encoding
types to try is defined by the -s parameter and defaults to ascii, utf8
and UTF-16/32 with BOM. This can be overridden by passing one or more
encoding types via the -s parameter. If you need to pass in multiple
suspect encoding types, use a quoted string with the a space separating
each value.
