Installation
------------

Install from `PyPI <https://pypi.org/project/chardet/>`_::

    pip install chardet

Documentation
-------------

For users, docs are now available at https://chardet.readthedocs.io/.

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

About
-----

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 <https://github.com/sigmavirus24>`_'s
`charade <https://github.com/sigmavirus24/charade>`_ fork, so now we have one
coherent version that works for Python 2.7+ and 3.4+.
