There is a database which writes data to third-party program, the task is to take data from it for reporting. In General, all written and working except for one awkward moment, the table is periodically saved to the text in the wrong encoding, ie it looks something like a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation repair that
and treated in the usual transcoding of 1251 to utf.
The fact of how to automatically determine what the text is stored incorrectly but to check it the presence of symbols °"? Maybe there's another, more competent method?

For example, it is possible to peep implementation autodetect encodings in far manager. Or Google similar. Typically the statistically typical character codes - start to read the file to a more or less unambiguous statistics and guess the encoding. far specifies the encoding quite successfully in most cases.

well, or when there are some hints of the type begins the file with the Russian text - it can be stupid to count the number of falls in the list of Russian letters to characters in several versions of transcode)
