Mac Catalyst 13.0–13.0Deprecated
If the contents begin with a Unicode byte-order mark (U+FEFF or U+FFFE), interprets the contents as UTF-16 code units. If the contents begin with a UTF-8 byte-order mark (EFBBBF), interprets the contents as UTF-8. Otherwise, interprets the contents as data in the default C string encoding. Since the default C string encoding will vary with the user’s configuration, do not depend on this method unless you are using Unicode or UTF-8 or you can verify the default C string encoding. Returns nil if the file can’t be opened.
Returns a string created by reading data from the file at a given path and returns by reference the encoding used to interpret the file.
