* A Web browser-oriented detector for guessing what character
* encoding a stream of bytes is encoded in.
* The bytes are fed to the detector incrementally using the `feed`
* method. The current guess of the detector can be queried using
* the `guess` method. The guessing parameters are arguments to the
* `guess` method rather than arguments to the constructor in order
* to enable the application to check if the arguments affect the
* guessing outcome. (The specific use case is to disable UI for
* re-running the detector with UTF-8 allowed and the top-level
* domain name ignored if those arguments don't change the guess.)

~EncodingDetector() = default;

UniquePtr<EncodingDetector> detector(chardetng_encoding_detector_new());

* Queries whether the TLD is considered non-generic and could affect the
* guess.
static inline bool TldMayAffectGuess(Span<const char> aTLD) {

* Inform the detector of a chunk of input.
* The byte stream is represented as a sequence of calls to this
* method such that the concatenation of the arguments to this
* method form the byte stream. It does not matter how the application
* chooses to chunk the stream. It is OK to call this method with
* a zero-length byte slice.
* The end of the stream is indicated by calling this method with
* `aLast` set to `true`. In that case, the end of the stream is
* considered to occur after the last byte of the `aBuffer` (which
* may be zero-length) passed in the same call. Once this method
* has been called with `last` set to `true` this method must not
* be called again.
* If you want to perform detection on just the prefix of a longer
* stream, do not pass `aLast=true` after the prefix if the stream
* actually still continues.
* Returns `true` if after processing `aBuffer` the stream has
* contained at least one non-ASCII byte and `false` if only
* ASCII has been seen so far.
* # Panics
* If this method has previously been called with `aLast` set to `true`.
inline bool Feed(Span<const uint8_t> aBuffer, bool aLast) {
return chardetng_encoding_detector_feed(this, aBuffer.Elements(),
aBuffer.Length(), aLast);
* Guess the encoding given the bytes pushed to the detector so far
* (via `Feed()`), the top-level domain name from which the bytes were
* loaded, and an indication of whether to consider UTF-8 as a permissible
* guess.
* The `aTld` argument takes the rightmost DNS label of the hostname of the
* host the stream was loaded from in lower-case ASCII form. That is, if
* the label is an internationalized top-level domain name, it must be
* provided in its Punycode form. If the TLD that the stream was loaded
* from is unavalable, an empty `Spane` may be passed instead, which is
* equivalent to passing a `Span` for "com".
* If the `aAllowUTF8` argument is set to `false`, the return value of
* this method won't be `UTF_8_ENCODING`. When performing detection
* on `text/html` on non-`file:` URLs, Web browsers must pass `false`,
* unless the user has taken a specific contextual action to request an
* override. This way, Web developers cannot start depending on UTF-8
* detection. Such reliance would make the Web Platform more brittle.
* Returns the guessed encoding.
* # Panics
* If `aTld` contains non-ASCII, period, or upper-case letters. (The panic
* condition is intentionally limited to signs of failing to extract the
* label correctly, failing to provide it in its Punycode form, and failure
* to lower-case it. Full DNS label validation is intentionally not performed
* to avoid panics when the reality doesn't match the specs.)
