    Default Change file encoding from ANSI to UTF-8

    I read from a file that may have ANSI or UTF-8 encoding, and by default BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(outFile) saves the file in ANSI. I would like to save it in UTF-8. How could I do that?

    There are I/O classes that take the encoding as a parameter to the constructor.
    For example see the OutputStreamWriter class.
