Does anyone know of a technique to determine if a file (in the IFS) is
text or binary (in java)?

I need to copy various files from the IFS to another server ... these
files can be in any number of CCSID's.

If the file is text, I want to write it to the other server in the
target servers native text format ... if the file is binary, I don't
want to do any translation.

I can use the toolkit's CharConverter routines to convert the text from
the files CCSID to the native text format ... but if it's binary, I
don't want to use that routine.

Any suggestions?
