public String (byte[] ascii, int hibyte)

Deprecated: This method does not properly convert bytes into characters. As of JDK 1.1, the preferred way to do this is via the String constructors that take a java.nio.charset.Charset, charset name, or that use the platform's default charset.

Allocates a new String containing characters constructed from an array of 8-bit integer values. Each character cin the resulting string is constructed from the corresponding component b in the byte array such that:

     c == (char)(((hibyte & 0xff) << 8)
                         | (b & 0xff))

ascii     The bytes to be converted to characters
hibyte     The top 8 bits of each 16-bit Unicode code unit
