True, I thought that option was a bit silly, since users can always
encode after the fact if they want.
Performance is being hampered somewhat by having to do newline
conversions, but the results are good:
ruby -Ilib benchmarks/win32_nio_benchmarks.rb
Small file created (588k)
Medium file created (6mb)
Large file created (58mb)
Huge file created (618mb)
user system total real
IO.read(small) 0.016000 0.016000 0.032000 ( 0.027001)
IO.read(medium) 0.234000 0.062000 0.296000 ( 0.295017)

NIO.read(huge) 13.822000 7.909000 21.731000 ( 32.729872)
Minor improvements for smaller files, but the savings gets better as
the files get bigger. It's a shame there's no text mode for
BTW, using FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING with a sector aligned buffer didn't
yield any noticeable improvements that I could see.
