I need to be able to read and write text files to and from the following character sets: ASCII, ISO-8809-1, MacRoman, and UTF-8.

I have developed the following code which works, but I don't know how to specify the character set.

Will somebody tell me how to modify my code so that the Charset object that is used can be a parameter?

Instead of FileReader -> BufferedReader you'd use FileInputStream -> InputStreamReader -> BufferedReader. The InputStreamReader constructor can take a CharSet as a parameter. It works similarly for output streams instead of a Writer.
