I fount too many people saving the file as "M.java"(double inverted) , they don't got any reason to do that.

I never save the file with Double Inverted...... , never get any problem.

If you are saving the file through an old version of a text editor say for e.g. notepad
then saving the file as M.java will actually save the file as M.java.txt
and hence you may find people use "M.java" although not necessary everywhere.

Because saving it as "M.java" will not add the .txt extension by itself.

In following case a text file will be created
file name M.java
save as type :.text

In following case a java file will be created
file name "M.java"
save as type :.text
