This Mercurial extension will remove the BOM from all Unicode files. Resulting file will be UTF-8 and without pesky BOM bytes.
This extension is not distributed with Mercurial.

This extension will modify all Unicode files with BOM (byte order mark) and convert them to BOM-less UTF-8. This comes especially handy when dealing with Microsoft's Visual Studio that is really UTF-8 BOM happy.
Extensions adds two commands (killbom, checkbom) and hooks into the commit process.
To use it just add following in the hgrc or global Mercurial settings file:
[extensions] killbom = /path/to/killbom.py [killbom] extensions = utf-8 utf-16le utf-16be utf-32le utf-32be maxsize = 1024
Using killbom command will remove Unicode COM from all modified and newly added files:
hg killbom [options] options: -8 --utf8only removes only UTF-8 BOM signature
To just verify whether all files are BOM free, you would use checkbom command:
hg checkbom [options] options: -8 --utf8only checks for only UTF-8 BOM signature
In addition there are three hooks. On pretxncommit and pretxnchangegroup extension will verify whether all Unicode files are BOM-free and it will stop commit if they are not. On precommit extension will modify files and remove BOM.
