I think RandomAccessFile is correct as that is the only method to update anything in the file (in a non-sequential manner). All streams, readers and writers access file sequentially. Append can be done by all of them. Any comments? Savithri

I think u can modify a file using all three above.U cannot use a OutputStream,but a subclass of it,namely FileOutputStream.Random AccessFile is used for non sequential access and the other two will be used for sequential access. I hope I have been clear enough. ------------------ Come on in !! Drinks are on the house in the Big Moose Saloon !!
