12 new file & stream encoding checking routines added to Code Snippets Database
Twelve new routines have been added to the Encoding section of the Code Snippets database. Each pair of routine checks a file or a stream for a certain text encoding. The following encodings are detected by looking for byte order marks: UTF-7, UTF-8 and UTF-16 (little endian, big ending or either formats). In addition there are a pair of routines for checking for ASCII encoding which check some or all of the file or stream's content.
