Requires Python 2.6 or later


Install from `PyPI <>`_::

    pip install chardet

Command-line Tool

chardet comes with a command-line script which reports on the encodings of one
or more files::

    % chardetect somefile someotherfile
    somefile: windows-1252 with confidence 0.5
    someotherfile: ascii with confidence 1.0


This is a continuation of Mark Pilgrim's excellent chardet. Previously, two
versions needed to be maintained: one that supported python 2.x and one that
supported python 3.x.  We've recently merged with `Ian Cordasco <>`_'s
`charade <>`_ fork, so now we have one
coherent version that works for Python 2.6+.
