Thread: Writing to specific memory space

    Default Writing to specific memory space

    I am trying to write a specific byte sequence to a specific memory location on a removable storage drive. Does Java allow me a way to do this? I know the dangers in accessing memory, but the memory location of the data that will be written will never change.

    I am new to Java and can not seem to get footing on how to assign a variable a memory location. If you can point me in the right direction that would help.

    No, Java does not provide the ability to do what you describe.

    Another interesting question is, why would you want to access memory like this?

    Maybe another approach would be better and allow you to use Java.
