About

This is a continuation of Mark Pilgrim's excellent chardet. Previously, two versions needed to be maintained: one that supported python 2.x and one that supported python 3.x. We've recently merged with Ian Corduscano's charade fork, so now we have one coherent version that works for Python 2.6+.
