Print Unicode characters to the Terminal with Java
Authored by: dc_rees on Aug 25, '05 05:22:30AM

Well, Sun is just plain wrong on this one.

Apple's java is not quite right either, perhaps. Java should get it's environment from the terminal when invoked from the terminal.

But wrapping your readers and writers to force them to read and write shift-JIS is putting that sort of functionality in the wrong place. When the terminal is not quite correctly interfaced with Java is exactly the time you don't want to hard code the work-around.
