I found the command
enca
available on Linux
In my case, i installed on CentOS 4 the rpm
enca-1.9-4.el4.rf.i386.rpm
and the command gives following output
a) on a file supposed to be in UTF-8
[root@mini figari]# enca -L none ./fr/texte_titre.html
Universal transformation format 8 bits; UTF-8
b) on a file supposed to be in ISO8859-1
[root@mini figari]# enca -L none ./en/texte_accueil.html
7bit ASCII characters


(but ideally, enca should be configured with french language to help format recognition, unfortunately, french seems not to be included Smilie)
my 2 cents

sdeckanji(5)							File Formats Manual						      sdeckanji(5)

NAME
sdeckanji - A character encoding system (codeset) for Japanese DESCRIPTION
The Super DEC Kanji codeset extends the DEC Kanji codeset to support the CS2 (JIS Katakana) and CS3 (JIS X0212) character sets that are also included in the Japanese EUC codeset. Super DEC Kanji is therefore a superset of both DEC Kanji and Japanese EUC and can handle data encoded in either DEC Kanji or Japanese EUC. The codeset was implemented to ease the transition from DEC Kanji, which is proprietary encod- ing, to Japanese EUC, which is encoding specified by an industry standard. In addition to supporting standard Japanese character sets, Super DEC Kanji provides three areas for defining User-Defined Characters (UDC). The UDC areas are as follows: ------------------------------------------------------------ Area Usage Row Range Number of Char- Code Range acters ------------------------------------------------------------ JIS X0208 85-94 940 F5A1-FEFE JIS X0212 78-94 1598 SS3 [EEA1-FEFE] UDC 1-94 8836 A121-FE7E ------------------------------------------------------------ The representation of ASCII/JIS Roman, JIS X0208 and User-Defined Characters (UDC) in Super DEC Kanji is the same as that in DEC Kanji. The representation of CS2 and CS3 in Super DEC Kanji is the same as that in Japanese EUC. Codeset Conversion The following codeset converter pairs are available for converting Japanese characters between sdeckanji and other encoding formats. Refer to iconv_intro(5) for an introduction to codeset conversion. For more information about the other codeset for which sdeckanji is the input or output, see the reference page specified in the list item. deckanji_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_deckanji Converting from and to the DEC Kanji codeset: deckanji(5). eucJP_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_eucJP Converting from and to Japanese Extended UNIX Code: eucJP(5). ISO-2022-JP_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_ISO-2022JP Converting from and to the ISO 2022-JP codeset: iso2022jp(5). ISO-2022-JPext_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_ISO-2022JPext Converting from and to the ISO 2022-JP Extended codeset: iso2022jp(5). JIS7_sdeckanji or jiskanji7_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_JIS7 or sdeckanji_jiskanji7 Converting from and to 7-bit JIS Kanji code: jiskanji(5). SJIS_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_SJIS Converting from and to the Shift JIS codeset: SJIS(5). Shift JIS encoding is identical to encoding used in the Microsoft Japanese code page for PC systems. Therefore, you can use these converters to convert Japanese characters between Super DEC Kanji and PC code-page format. For information on how the operating sys- tem supports PC code pages, see code_page(5). UCS-2_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_UCS-2 Converting from and to UCS-2 format: Unicode(5). UCS-4_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_UCS-4 Converting from and to UCS-4 format: Unicode(5). UTF-8_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_UTF-8 Converting from and to UTF--8 format: Unicode(5). Font Support for Super DEC Kanji For display devices, the operating system supports sdeckanji code by converting it to deckanji and using fonts available for deckanji. Refer to i18n_printing(5) and Japanese(5) for information about supporting print jobs that contain Japanese characters. SEE ALSO
Commands: locale(1) Others: ascii(5), code_page(5), deckanji(5), eucJP(5), i18n_intro(5), i18n_printing(5), iconv_intro(5), iso2022jp(5), Japanese(5), jiskanji(5), l10n_intro(5), shiftjis(5), Unicode(5) sdeckanji(5)
