    How many bytes read using readFully()?

    I'm reading a DataInput.
    I have a variable number of bytes stored at the end of an input stream (may be in a file, may come from a socket, etc.).
    I need EOF to tell me when I reach the end AND I need the count of the actual number of bytes of data.

    This gets the data:

    byte[] data = new byte[WAY_TOO_MANY_BYTES];
    try {
    } catch (EOF e) {
        // ignore
    But I don't know how many bytes actually read. Can anyone think of a way to get the count, short of reading one byte at a time and counting them?
