StreamWriter Constructor (Stream)
Initializes a new instance of the StreamWriter class for the specified stream by using UTF-8 encoding and the default buffer size.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This constructor creates a StreamWriter with UTF-8 encoding without a Byte-Order Mark (BOM), so its GetPreamble method returns an empty byte array. The default UTF-8 encoding for this constructor throws an exception on invalid bytes. This behavior is different from the behavior provided by the encoding object in the Encoding.UTF8 property. To specify whether an exception is thrown on invalid bytes, use a constructor that accepts an encoding object as a parameter, such as StreamWriter. The BaseStream property is initialized using the stream parameter. The position of the stream is not reset.
When you compile a set of characters with a particular cultural setting and retrieve those same characters with a different cultural setting, the characters might not be interpretable and could cause an exception to be thrown.
