    Binary file problem

    I am writing to a binary file. My poblem is that i want that the next time it write to the file it will write on a new line. What can i do? Thanks a lot.

    This is the piece of code that writes to the file:

    Code:
                         File aFile  = new File( "players.dat" );
                         // create an output stream to the file
                         FileOutputStream aFileOutStream = new FileOutputStream ( aFile, true );
                         // create a data output stream to the file output stream
                         DataOutputStream aDataOutStream = new DataOutputStream ( aFileOutStream );
                         // write data to file
                         aDataOutStream.writeUTF(player);
                         aDataOutStream.writeUTF(String.valueOf(percent) );
                         aDataOutStream.writeUTF(type );
    
                         aFileOutStream.close();

    Append a carriage return/line feed to each line.

    Writing to a file is just like writing to the console: you are manipulating a stream of data.
