Hi I'm trying to write a class which will be able to read a file written in any format, provided its encoding informaiton. I've used java.nio.charset.Charset and related classes to do the same. My problem is that, this class(java.nio.charset.Charset) provides only a number of formats(if charset.jar is also taken into account, then some more). I want to provide my own characters/encoding. I looked for the same in JDK 5.0 documentation but I could only find java.nio.charset.CharsetProvider whose use I don't know. Please help me and guide me how to provide extensions for charset or any useful link.
"RupeshKumar", fred's request that you change your display name to adhere to JavaRanch standards was not a suggestion. Valid display names are mandatory for participation on the Ranch. Please change your display name as instructed prior to your next post.
The fact that someone else has the same name as a display name is not a factor.
Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are disabled.
