Initializes a new instance of the Encoding class that corresponds to the specified code page.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assemblies:   System.Text.Encoding (in System.Text.Encoding.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected Encoding(

The code page identifier of the preferred encoding.

-or-

0, to use the default encoding.

Derived classes override this constructor.

Calls to this constructor from a derived class create an Encoding object that uses best-fit fallback for both encoding and decoding operations. Both the DecoderFallback and EncoderFallback properties are read-only and cannot be modified. To control the fallback strategy for a class derived from Encoding, call the Encoding(Int32, EncoderFallback, DecoderFallback) constructor.
