File IO is a large subject, and what I really find confusing about
it is that nearly anywhere you look for information on it, you find
a morass of different methods listed on how to read or write to
files, but nothing that really sorts them out from each other, as
to why you would use one method over another.
Does anyone know of a good tutorial site the makes this all clear?
Oracle's site has one that goes over the methods, but nothing
explaining why you would use one method over the other in a clear
manner, and the whole Java API is not much help in that regard
either, although I can say that it beats the hell out of Microsoft's
Visual Basic API!
