Hi All,

In my delete method I am

doing like this .
database.writeBytes("1");

becasue in instruction written
1 byte "deleted" flag. 0 implies valid record, 1 implies deleted record

please tell me is it okay ???

I prefer use writeBytes() method that use int as the parameter. Either way, just make sure that it works the way you want.

In my assignment, the delete flag is short, so I use writeShort() method to mark the record as deleted.

Good Luck !!!

You should not use the writeBytes(String) version, as character '1' is not the same thing as integer 1 (the value of '1' is in fact 49).

Hello all,
Are you sure that 1 is the right value for a deleted record ?
In the spec we can read :

0xFF implies deleted record

, yet 0xFF = -1 ...
(I'm currently working on UB-1.3.3)

Different version of URLyBird also has different delete flag. That's why I always included my version of URLyBird when I open the thread.
