UTF8Script is a binfmt_misc plugin for UTF-8 scripts.
Version: 1.0UTF8Script provides an additional binary format for Linux: scripts that start with a UTF-8 signature (aka BOM), i.e. with the byte sequence xefxbbxbf#!.
Operating System: Linux
This is particularly useful for scripting languages that recognize the BOM, e.g. Python. With Python 2.3 or newer, scripts with the UTF-8 BOM are considered UTF-8 enocded without the need for an addition encoding declaration.
