Hi
Thank you for reading my post
I have an string like

This is
My new
Car.


I should convert it to an inputStream in otder to be able to use that stream in an API
I use following code to convert the string to inputStream




Now when i use this byteArray it removes all of my new line characters (enter) and all of my words come one after another.

I found it after several hours of hard works to figure out what is wrong with the API, How i find that bytearray removes all New Line (enter) characters?
I find it by writing the content of the above array into a file

code snippet that i used to write the array into the file is like:



Can you tell me how i can preserve those New Line (enter) characters after each line?

No, it doesn't remove new-lines. However, the way that Java wrote out the new-lines may not match the new-line convention used by your editor.

You may find it useful to look at the file in a hex editor (I'd use hexl-mode in emacs, but you're probably not using emacs, so choose your own way of viewing a file in hex).

Perhaps post the hex dump of a file for a small string here. Also, please tell us what your operating system is.

Also, how did you get the data into your string? How do you know it actually contains new-lines?

Are you sure that this is really the case? How do you know it removes the newlines? I wrote the following test program, and in the output file (C:\out.txt) the newlines are not missing.
