the DataInputStream and
DataOutputStream classes are high - level streams that contain methods for reading and writing
the eight Java primitive types as well as String objects



When I deal with a file, I save text there, and read it somewhere.

only text.As C or PHP

What is the usage of save as "primitive types"?

May you show by an example?

Not all files need to be text files. It is perfectly valid to save integers, floats, doubles, etc. to a binary file, in their native representation.

Now, of course, if you only believe in using text files, then these methods probably won't ever be used by you.
