Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Reading and writing character streams, part of Advanced Java Programming (2012).
In a previous video I described how to use the FileInputStream and FileOutputStream classes…to read and write both text and binary files.…But if you're working with character-based data, that is text files, it's recommended that…use classes named FileReader and FileWriter instead.…These classes--unlike the InputStream and OutputStream--automatically handle character sets other…than UTF-8. For this exercise I'll use the CharacterStreams project which has the same…code as in the previous video. It's reading and writing a couple of files.…
I'm going to start with a source file of "textfile txt" a file I've already placed in this project,…and I'll change the name of the output file to "newfile.txt".…Now I'll change the classes that I'm going to use to read and write.…The interfaces for these new classes are the same as for the old ones so all I have to…do is change the names of the classes that I'm using.…I'll change FileInputStream to FileReader, and I'll do that both in the data-type declaration…
