RandomAccessFile


For RandomAccessFile, there is a writeUTF() method.  Is there just a plain writeString() or writeln() method, or a way to implement such a thing using RandomAccessFile (I like the ability to both read and write and append using the same stream, but in this case I just want to work with text files)?  There is a writeChars(), but it writes a string of chars, with a space between each, so it isn't quite what I'm looking for.

Thanks for any help!

Try writeBytes. A weird name, but you can give a String value for parameter and it's written as a string to file (so you can read it in your ASCII editor). Use "\n" for new line.

Yeah, the name is real confusing. It took me some time to find that function ("but I don't want to write bytes, I want to write strings!";-) Good luck with it.
