An InputStreamReader is a bridge from byte streams to character streams: It
reads bytes and translates them into characters according to a specified
character encoding. The encoding that it uses may be specified by name, or
the platform's default encoding may be accepted.
Each invocation of one of an InputStreamReader's read() methods may
cause one or more bytes to be read from the underlying byte-input stream.
For top efficiency, consider wrapping an InputStreamReader within a
BufferedReader; for example,
= new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
