This is my first time here, and looking for a good book with examples that
basically begin with the fundamentals up to advanced on the following

I am looking for parsing examples that will look at either textual or binary
files that can find certain sync patterns in the data and extract those
bytes whether by length indicator or by a start or end pattern.

Is there such a book in existance thatwill show me the way to do this
type of Java programming.

thanks Bejay
