Encodings, etc

Posted on 2004-09-17

I'm searching for the method used to write and read cyrillic characters from a standard text file using BufferedReader/BufferedWriter.  I've been unable to find any useful information so far and my attempts at writing and saving in different encodings has failed so far.  

Any ideas?

If you're reading, you'll need to know what encoding has been used

OK - so you know what 'x' is ! ;-)

String encdoing = "UTF8";
BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(new FileOutputStream("x.txt"), encoding));
