Python libmbfl bindings

Project description

pymbfl provides Python bindings for libmbfl. libmbfl is used to determine encoding of the files; it tries to guess the right encoding depending on the list of the encodings which user wants to check.

Typical pymbfl usage:

>> import pymbfl

# Collect information about encoding
>> encoding = pymbfl.Encoding("ascii")
>> bool(encoding.flags & pymbfl.MBCS)
False
>> encoding.mime
'US-ASCII'
>> encoding.aliases
['ANSI_X3.4-1968', 'iso-ir-6', 'ANSI_X3.4-1986', 'ISO_646.irv:1991',
'US-ASCII', 'ISO646-US', 'us', 'IBM367', 'IBM-367', 'cp367', 'csASCII']

# Determine possible encoding
>> language = "ru"
>> encodings = ["UTF-8", "UTF-16", "UTF-32LE"]
>> detector = pymbfl.Detector(language, encodings)
>> detector.detect(data, strict) # enable/disable strict check and detect

See docs/pymbfl.html file for more detailed description.
