Compare FileReader and FileInputStream
I have a file with the following char, saved as utf-8:
The character is the unicode hex value "010C" (Latin Extended-A).
As much as i understand it is saved as binary values: 00000001 00001100
I am running on windows XP and the default character-set of the JVM is the codebase "windows-1252".
When reading the values with java.io.FileInputStream one byte after another and print the contents to the console, i get the following values:
But if i run it with java.io.FileReader i get the following values:
Why is there such a difference?
Why doesnt it print:
1 -- equivalent to first 2 hex digits - (01)
12 -- equivalent to last 2 hex digits - (0C)
