Hi guys,
I don't really know how it works but I wanna convert a String to its binary representation.
It can be done char by char or the whole String at once.

Thank you!

I believe you're looking for the String.getBytes methods. Be sure to read up on which you need, depending on the encoding of the String.

Also useful would be Integer.toBinaryString.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
