utfbom Godoc License Build Status Go Report Card Coverage Status

The package utfbom implements the detection of the BOM (Unicode Byte Order Mark) and removing as necessary. It can also return the encoding detected by the BOM.

Installation

go get -u github.com/dimchansky/utfbom

Example

package main

import (
	"bytes"
	"fmt"
	"io/ioutil"

	"github.com/dimchansky/utfbom"
)

func main() {
	trySkip([]byte("\xEF\xBB\xBFhello"))
	trySkip([]byte("hello"))
}

func trySkip(byteData []byte) {
	fmt.Println("Input:", byteData)

	// just skip BOM
	output, err := ioutil.ReadAll(utfbom.SkipOnly(bytes.NewReader(byteData)))
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
		return
	}
	fmt.Println("ReadAll with BOM skipping", output)

	// skip BOM and detect encoding
	sr, enc := utfbom.Skip(bytes.NewReader(byteData))
	fmt.Printf("Detected encoding: %s\n", enc)
	output, err = ioutil.ReadAll(sr)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
		return
	}
	fmt.Println("ReadAll with BOM detection and skipping", output)
	fmt.Println()
}

Output:

$ go run main.go
