Chared — Character encoding detection

Chared is a tool for detecting the character encoding of a text in a known language. The language of the text has to be specified as an input parameter so that correspondent language model can be used. The package contains models for a wide range of languages. In general, it should be more accurate than character encoding detection algorithms with no language constraints.
