         specify a list of "suspect encoding types" to test, seperated by either ":" or ","

         output a list of all acceptable encoding types that can be used with the -s param

         suppress display of unidentified types

       · Guess encoding of a file named "test.txt", using only the default suspect types.

            encguess test.txt

       · Guess the encoding type of a file named "test.txt", using the suspect types

            encguess -s euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test.txt
            encguess -s euc-jp:shiftjis:7bit-jis test.txt

       · Guess the encoding type of several files, do not display results for unidentified files.

            encguess -us euc-jp,shiftjis,7bit-jis test*.txt


       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.
