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.
