Hi,

We are facing problems in reading locale specific characters from a file.
We are using the Buffered Reader to read the file, but the locale specific chars in the file are read as some wrong characters.

for Example the char: é is read as ý by the Buffered Reader. We are using the Jdk1.3.

Could you please help me in resolving this problem.

Many Thanks,

CHandra

Are you using the same character encoding to read the file as it was written in?

Yes.. we are writing to the file using a buffered Writer and reading using a bufered reader.
and to my surprise i found a strange thing here...
When i run my program in Windows OS it's reading the characters correctly.
But when i run my program in UNIX OS the locale specific characters are read differently.
