The encoding identification is done by checking one encoding type at a time until all but
the right type are eliminated. The set of encoding types to try is defined by the -s
parameter and defaults to ascii, utf8 and UTF-16/32 with BOM. This can be overridden by
passing one or more encoding types via the -s parameter. If you need to pass in multiple
suspect encoding types, use a quoted string with the a space separating each value.
