"how do i detect if have to apply utf-8 decode or encode on a string?" Answer’s


I can't say I can rely on mb_detect_encoding(). I had some freaky false positives a while back.

The most universal way I found to work well in every case was:

if (preg_match('!!u', $string))
   // This is UTF-8
   // Definitely not UTF-8
