Subject: [JVM] IO::Handle.readchars incorrectly assumes all chars are 2 bytes long
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 634b
Based on the code, seems it's a naive kludge for the unimplemented nqp::readcharsfh op. As a result, .readchars on JVM reads incorrect number of chars, at times producing wrong data altogether: <ZoffixW> j: "/tmp/Foo.pm6".IO.spurt: "I♥u so very much"; "/tmp/Foo.pm6" <camelia> rakudo-jvm fb4f16: OUTPUT: «I♥u ␤» <ZoffixW> j: "/tmp/Foo.pm6".IO.spurt: "I love you so very much"; "/tmp/Foo.pm6" <camelia> rakudo-jvm fb4f16: OUTPUT: «I love␤» <ZoffixW> j: "/tmp/Foo.pm6".IO.spurt: "♥"; "/tmp/Foo.pm6" <camelia> rakudo-jvm fb4f16: OUTPUT: «�␤»
