(Review: ) IO streams are either character-oriented or byte-oriented. Character-oriented IO has special features for handling character data. Byte-oriented IO is for all types of data (including characters, if you want). This chapter shows character-oriented output to a disk file using a Writer stream.

IO hierarchy

What class can used for writing characters to a file? You know that the class will descend from Writer. If you do not know what class you need, you could look under Writer in the Java documentation. (Or you could search the Web.)


Does the class FileWriter seem like a likely candidate?
