Due to the instruction, I have to set a flag, which is just one byte in length, to indicate whether a record is valid or deleted. As I know, a byte variable could only ranges in -128 to 127. However, the instruction asks me to use 0XFF (which is 255) as a "deleted record" flag. How can I put 0XFF into a byte variable ?
Originally posted by Eric Chou: Thank you, Kah Tang. However, your solution does help me write 0XFF into a byte field. There is not method called "writeUnsignedByte()", do you have a better idea in writing data?
Yeah.. as Paul said, the writeByte() method. This will write the lower 8 bits of the int to the stream. [ July 28, 2008: Message edited by: Kah Tang ]
