Follow-up Comment #1, bug #55974 (project octave):

The short answer is that Octave does not currently have a heuristic way to
detect the file encoding simply by looking at the bytes.

If you change the setting in the Preferences, Editor tab, that says "Text
encoding used for loading and saving" to be "ISO-8859-1", then your
test_iso88591 script works correctly but the UTF-8 encoded script shows
garbage characters.

Maybe something can be done about Octave hanging when it tries to decode a
file that is not valid UTF-8 and hits an invalid byte sequence. Is that what
you'd like to see fixed here?
