Determine encoding of XML file with xerces-c and SAXParser

Hello Everyone,

I am facing a problem which should be relatively easy to solve for XML
or XERCES experts. I am parsing my XML instance using xerces-c
SAXParser. For internal purposes, it is essential to determine the
charset encoding which is usually indentified within the header of the
XML file e.g. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
After a query in the xerces-c API documentation I guess that:

- XMLDecl(const XMLCh *const versionStr, const XMLCh *const
encodingStr, const XMLCh *const standaloneStr, const XMLCh *const
actualEncodingStr)

should be the right method to detect the according encoding scheme.
After desperate tries to implement this function, I would like to ask
whether somebody has example code in c++ for me as I am almost about to
faint.. Should be very easy actually but maybe I am just not clever
enough to solve myself.. =((

Every code snippet is highly appreciated!!!!

Thanks in advance,
Chris

getEncoding()
Sorry, upon further inspection it turns out that this does not work the
same as it does in Java (which I assumed). Can't help you...
