Universal Text Recognizer and Converter

The Universal Text Recognizer and Converter (Utrac) is a commandline tool and a C library that recognizes the encoding of an input file (UTF-8, ISO-8859-1, CP437, etc.) and its end-of-line type (CR, LF, or CRLF). It features automatic recognition (depending on the file and on the system's locale, reliable in most cases), assistance for verification or manual recognition, and conversion to another charset and/or end-of-line type.
