Official Mirror:
File::BOM provides functions for handling Unicode Byte Order Marks, which are sometimes found at the beginning of some files and streams. It allows programs to automatically determine the original byte ordering a file was written with; in other words, whether the program was written in little-endian or big-endian byte order. This module provides a simple way to open a file, determine its byte ordering and return the appropriate encoding style. Byte Order Marks are usually found at the beginning of a file, but in the case of a stream where this is not the case, this module also provides a utility to scan any filehandle for it.
