    • guessEncoding

      public static String guessEncoding​(byte[] message)
      The encoding for byte messages should be ISO8859_1 or JIS, depending on which version of the specification you follow. In reality people use whatever they want and expect it to magically work. This attempts to figure out if it's ISO8859_1, JIS, or UTF8. UTF-8 is the most common and is used if its ambiguous.
