BufferedReader to byte[]

Need to load image to a byte[] variable.

File file = new File(context.getFilesDir(), body + ".image");
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(file));


How can I convert
BufferedReader
to
byte[]
?

Answer

A Reader is meant for converting bytes into characters. That is not what you want here. You need an InputStream instead. You can then read() from the stream to your byte[] array as needed, eg:

File file = new File(context.getFilesDir(), body + ".image");
InputStream in = new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(file));
byte[] buf = new byte[file.length()];
int numRead = in.read(buf);
