import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Map;
 
public class GFG {
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // First charset
        Charset first = Charset.forName("ISO-2022-CN");
 
        // Second charset
        Charset second = Charset.forName("UTF-8");
 
        System.out.println(first.equals(second));
    }
}

false

 

Program 2: 

Java
