Hi, I was wondering if there are any text file reading classes that don't get interupted at line breaks "\n" ? I might be able to get around that, but it would be nicer to have a class that could read the entire line without stopping at the line breaks. Thanks

"Text file" is incompatible with "don't get interrupted at \n"; the idea behind opening something in text mode rather than binary mode (and I know Java doesn't have things like ios::text or ios::binary; I'm talking conceptually) is that newlines get special treatment - in particular, they are separators.

That said, you might consider ByteArrayInputStream or DataInputStream (which are really intended to work with "binary files", however accurately you suppose that can be defined...).
