Some years ago I wrote a code that must be trained which guess encoding 
and language. The problems are that it must be trained with large texts 
and of course the result are only statistical and only quite good over 
quite large texts (like 1000 chars or more) so it is not good for single 

If you are interested I can dive into old codes to catch it.
