Can anyone explain to me the use of these %! commands anyway?

I've used TeXShop for a few years and never used them.

Specifying the file encoding seems unnecessary to me as there are many
ways in Cocoa to find out the encoding of a file, are they used by LaTeX
or TeX at all?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, thanks for your time, especially if
it really is a dumb question.
