I have a program that reads data from file, but can only process utf-8 data.

When on Windows, these files are encoded as windows1252, and I need to
convert them to utf-8.
When on Linux, they are often already encoded as utf-8.

On Linux, I can read the environment variable LC_CTYPE, or call the libc
function nl_langinfo(CODESET)

But is there any more general means to retrieve the default encoding used
by the host ?
