Link says it all.

Does anyone have any good tools for accurate encoding detection and/or conversion? I have a corpus of files (~15,000) that are maybe 90% us-ascii, but there is a significant chunk (about ~1,500) that have very disparate encodings, everything from latin-1 to in-is13194-devanagari.

As for current tools, I have been using a combination of `file -I`, Emacs, and `enca` (which has been next to worthless, though I suspect that this is due to it having been installed by homebrew on OS X with no OS internationalization integration). Emacs has actually done a fantastic job so far of detecting and reporting encodings (I get warned with the encoding whenever I open something that isn't ASCII or UTF-8), But I don't have the experience (or time to acquire it) to reverse-engineer the elisp and turn this into a batch job.

Writing unit tests in Costa Rica. My priorities are mis-placed.

I love it when two of my favorite things collide; transcendental art and electronic music.

It turns out that CyanogenMod now supports the Samsung Epic 4G in both a CM7.2 (Gingerbread) nightly build and with a CM9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) alpha. The 7.2 build felt smoother, but is there anything I'd miss in ICS if I wait for the dust to clear on it first?

I think the next app I write for fun is going to procedurally generate Skrillex albums.
