I've just updated Encode-O-Matic with a Guess Input Encoding feature. When you start Encode-O-Matic or when you use the 'Guess
Input Encoding' menu item from the 'Tools' menu, Encode-O-Matic will try out various combinations of encodings and guess at which set seem to apply to your input. For instance given the following
text, Encode-O-Matic will correctly guess that it is percent encoded, base64 encoded, deflate compressed text:
It should work fairly well for simple things but I did pick 'Guess' for the name of the feature to intentionally lower expectations. It doesn't currently apply to character encodings but that
may be something to consider in the future.

I've just put up an update for Encode-O-Matic with the following improvements:
- Hex editor: the output and input views can now be switched between a UTF8 textbox view and a hex editor view. This is built using the free Be.HexEditor.
- Compression: I've added the .NET GZip, deflate, and inflate streams to the list of supported encodings.
- Quick Show Output: There are now 'Show Output' radio buttons next to each encoding in the encoding stack. Clicking on them changes the output view to show the output from that encoding in the
stack. This lets you easily jump between different parts of your encoding process. Adding or removing an encoding to the stack resets the view.
- Minor visuals improvement: added app icon, changed buttons with one word symbols to command names.

For Encode-O-Matic, my encoding tool written in C#, I had to figure out the appropriate DllImport declarations to use IDN Win32
functions which was a pain. To spare others that pain here's the two files CharacterSetEncoding.cs and NationalLanguageSupportUtilities.cs that declare the DllImports for IdnToUnicode, IdnToAscii,
NormalizeString, MultiByteToWideChar, and WideCharToMultiByte.

Free encoding conversion application I made. Convert strings between various Internet related encodings including character sets, HTML encoding, URI encoding, and more.

I've updated Encode-O-Matic
again. This is a tool I'm working on to convert between various Internet related encodings such as
character sets, HTML encoding, URI encoding, base64, and IDN. In this update I've put it all into an installer. I'm using Nullsoft's installer
to produce the installer. I've added a Base Conversion converter to convert between arbitrary bases and a Reverse converter that reverses the input by character, byte, or strings with
