Apex Data Loader writeUTF8 Setting

I have been researching this for 30 minutes (and have tried researching it in the past), but I cannot find an answer:


Does anyone know what encoding Apex Data Loader uses to write to CSV if the writeUTF8 setting is False?

I don't think its necessary to do true as "write to csv  UTF-8 encoding". You just do all encoding and decoding as false after that you try to upload your data i hope it will work properly. By the way SFDC is using by default UTF-8 character encoding.
