Hi *!
I have a web-application. The Frontend allows the user to upload a file (a csv file, containing some data). The frontend gets the file and puts the file into a String. Now the problem is the file can be using UTF8 encoding or ISO & normally it contains umlauts chars (above 127 code point) that are mapped differently on different code pages. Is there a way i can find the encoding of the file, just by the contents of the file???
Any help highly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,
Regards,
Usman.

Count every character above 127 and estimate.
