Hey, just a basic theory question that the text isn't doing a fantastic job of explaining. I know that java I/O streams are used for reading/writing bytes, as opposed to the system.in and system.out which read text from the keyboard. I'm just not understanding the whole "file" idea. Is this program actually reading/writing information from files saves onto your computer? And if so, is it converting it from text, to byte form, and then back to text form again for display in your program? The prof didn't have time to teach this topic, and I'm finding it difficult to understand on my own.
Thanks a lot!
