Hi all, if any of y'all have suggestions, let me know cause i'm stuck here.

I have a greek word "Σεπτέμβριος" (= "September" fyi), my goal is to use each character in the string to match it to the the first character in a line from the file (which will be stored in an array)

example: i hit the "Σ" in the string, after reading file I iterate through the array and find the line that matches, in this case "Σ=\u03a3".

I then use the string part from the array (example "\u03a3") to create the encoded version of the greek word for "September".

once I make this, I write it to a file and I will see "Σεπτέμβριος" in the file.

I have already proved that if I write "\u03a3\u03b5\u03c0\u03c4\u03ad\u03bc\u03b2\u03c1\u03b9\u03bf\u03c2", I will get the output I need.

the issue: it has a problem comparing the greek letters read from the file. I can write UTF-8 form, how can I read in it? how can I successful read a greek character?

I'm not even thinking of what the problem could be now I'd just like to point out that you are using "UTF-8" for writing, and "UTF8" for reading. This does not match. Both should be "UTF-8".
