I'm studying for a test that I have tonight. My study guide says "Know how to construct and use Byte streams". I don't have anything about this in my notes and the book is difficult to understand. Do any of you know what it is that I will need to know for this?

Hi Candy, In general byte streams are all classes that extend java.io.InputStream for reading raw bytes and java.io.OutputStream for writing raw bytes. You also have character streams which convert the raw bytes into characters according to an encoding scheme. These are subclasses of java.io.Reader and java.io.Writer. Take a look at the API docs in the java.io package for further information.
