RandomAccessFile.readLine() has carriage return

i am using RandomAccessFile.readLine(); to read from a text file. each string it reads has a Carriage Return (0d hex) as the last character.

to get rid of it, i copy all but the last chararcter into new string:

tempString = file.readLine();
imageFile[i] = tempString.substring (0, tempString.length() - 1);

this isn't real pretty.
is there a better way to get what i want?

Use BufferedReader.readLine() instead.

That is

BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(filename));
String line;
while ((line = br.readLine()) != null)
{
.
}
