Tim Holloway wrote:Unless I am very mistaken, "char" is a Unicode character. Not the same thing as in C/C++ where "char" practically means thinly-disguised byte. So I fail to see where using char with non-western languages makes any difference.

In fact, the p├Ždant in me says that treating characters as integers is the more questionable practice.



As one who works with binary streams fairly regularly I miss my unsigned byte datatype.  3-4 years back I wrote a parser for such a stream in Java and had all sorts of issues.

Of course, that's completely irrelevant to this thread, which I'm finding very interesting.  Can anyone recommend a good book for learning streams?

It is probably a good idea to keep the thread this post was split from for “idioms”.
I can think of a few books: I have all the following:
Cay Horstmann: Core Java II 2015/6 edition (I think 10/e), volume II
    Also Core Java SE8/Java SE9 for the Impatient (two books presumably very similar: I have the Java9 edition). Don't confuse this book with the beginner's book with a similar name.
Urma Fusco and Mycroft: Java8 in Action (Manning 2014) and Modern Java in Action which is a more recent version of the same book.
Maurice Naftalin Mastering Lambdas: Java Programming in a Multicore World (Oracle Press 2014).
Ken Koiusen Modern Java Recipes (O'Reilly 2017) Slightly different: this isn't a tutorial but a cookery book supplying recipes for particular problems.

Other people will doubtless have their recommendations, too.

Thanks for these wonderful suggestions. Will choose anyone of them for my studies.
