The I/O package has been extended with character streams,
which are like byte streams except that they contain 16-bit
Unicode characters rather than eight-bit bytes.
Where to Find Documentation
These new character streams are documented in the
1.1 notes we've added to the
Input and Output Streams lesson. In addition, we provide 1.1 versions
of the 1.0.2 I/O examples in that lesson where
has further documentation about these changes.
