Unix charset

How can I find out the charset on a Unix server (SUNOS 5.2)? I tried locale charmap and returned 646. What does 646 mean? If I send an xml file with encoding="utf-8", should the server be able to handle the file, even with special characters in it?

Encode::Detect::Detector - Detects the encoding of data SYNOPSIS
use Encode::Detect::Detector; my $charset = detect($octets); my $d = new Encode::Detect::Detector; $d->handle($octets); $d->handle($more_octets); $d->end; my $charset = $d->getresult; DESCRIPTION
This module provides an interface to Mozilla's universal charset detector, which detects the charset used to encode data. METHODS
$charset = Encode::Detect::Detector->detect($octets) Detect the charset used to encode the data in $octets and return the charset's name. Returns undef if the charset cannot be determined with sufficient confidence. $d = Encode::Detect::Detector->new() Creates a new "Encode::Detect::Detector" object and returns it. $d->handle($octets) Provides an additional chunk of data to be examined by the detector. May be called multiple times. Returns zero on success, nonzero if a memory allocation failed. $d->eof Informs the detector that there is no more data to be examined. In many cases, this is necessary in order for the detector to make a decision on the charset. $d->reset Resets the detector to its initial state. $d->getresult Returns the name of the detected charset or "undef" if no charset has (yet) been decided upon. May be called at any time. SEE ALSO
