Convert/Detect File Encoding

Tool can auto-detect your file or string encoding with confidence percentage. Also can change file or string encoding to another (selected) one.



String/Character Encoding?

A code is a system of rules to convert information from one form to another. When we convert information into another representation, we are encoding. When we convert back to the original representation, we are decoding. To be able to recover the original information through decoding, the encoding function must be invertible. String datatypes have assigned one byte per character. The real character set diverse by province, character implementations were sufficiently similar to prevent developers from disregarding this because a program's specially prepared characters such as time frame, storage, and comma were in a similar place in all of the Unicode characters that a project would encounter. Traditionally, these character series are based on ASCII or EBCDIC. When a message is exhibited on a framework using distinct encryption in one processing, a message is often disfigured, although somewhat legible. Some internet users learned to read the disfigured text. Unicode has a kind of condensed image. Many other programming languages now have Unicode string datatypes. The chosen byte source model of Unicode UTF-8 is intended not to have the earlier mentioned issues for older multibyte Unicode characters. UTF-8, UTF-16, and UTF-32 enable the developer to realize that the application divisions of pre-defined length are distinct from the "characters"; however, the main problem is poorly built APIs to mask this distinction.
