StreamReader Constructor (Stream, Encoding, Boolean)
Initializes a new instance of the StreamReader class for the specified stream, using the specified character encoding and byte order mark detection option.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public StreamReader( Stream stream, Encoding encoding, bool detectEncodingFromByteOrderMarks )
This constructor initializes the encoding as specified by the encoding parameter, the BaseStream property using the stream parameter, and the internal buffer to the default size.
The detectEncodingFromByteOrderMarks parameter detects the encoding by looking at the first three bytes of the stream. It automatically recognizes UTF-8, little-endian Unicode, and big-endian Unicode text if the file starts with the appropriate byte order marks. Otherwise, the user-provided encoding is used. See the Encoding.GetPreamble method for more information.
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.
