I'm sorry but I wasn't clear in what I am looking for.

I'm looking to be able to open a file and have D automatically tell me
which format it is, e.g. UTF-8, UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE, etc. without my
having to code it. Ideally I would like to be able to read any unicode
or ascii file and have D automatically detect its type and allow me to
read it into whatever format I want, such as char, wchar, dchar.
