This one comes from TextCommon.h:
EXTERN_API_C( OSStatus )
GetTextEncodingName (TextEncoding iEncoding,
ByteCount * oNameLength,
RegionCode * oActualRegion, /* can be NULL */
TextEncoding * oActualEncoding, /* can be NULL */
GetTextEncodingName = calldll.newcall(\
TC.GetTextEncodingName, 'Long', \
'InLong', 'InLong', 'InShort', 'InLong', 'InByte', \
'OutByte', 'OutShort', 'OutLong', 'OutPstring'\
