    • Hi,

      > 1)how can i get the encoding type a dat file?

      Hmm, not sure what do you mean by saying 'encoding type'. Is it

      System.Text.Encoding? If so, I believe this type is hardly applicable to

      .dat files unless their content is purely textual.

      > 2)how can i decode it?

      This is a meaningless question, here's why. The .dat extension is purely

      generic, it does not refer to any particular data format or binary/textual

      file layout. Or, I am missing the point of your question, can you please

      reply with more info?

    • first of all thanks a lot.

      i try to explain my problem. i have a .dat file and i want to see the human

      readable form of this files content. it must be possible to make it with c#

      file and io operations but i dont know how it is...
