SAS program file (.sas) character encoding

Hi all,

I  have to perform some common edits to many sas program files (extension '.sas')  and need to know the character encoding of the files in order to have python loop through them.  Is there a default or a set from which to pick?  Currently lost and unable to perform the operations I want -- if all else fails, I'll have to resort to manually changing each of the files, which is a path I'd rather not go down.

Thanks in advance.

Sas program files are plain text.  You can open them in Notepad.
