Fresh off the press (Spring 1999), this book covers some of the same ground in his
Networking book, but its all updated for Java2 and full of Things You Don't Know. The
java.io package has more than 60 classes, and lots of twisty little subtleties. Did you
know that PrintStream.println() is not cross-platform safe when used to send information
via a networking socket, for instance? Aha! Then you need this book.(cowgirl May 1999)

If you are coming fomr a different language, this is the book that will answer a lot of those "How do I do that in Java?" type questions. My web develepment background prior to Java, was in Perl. As anyone who works in Perl knows, file I/O in particular is a routine easy task. When I was transitioning to Java and trying to rely on my Perl background, I found it not so intuitive to do in Java some of the things I used to do in Perl. Then I got this book and it answered all my questions.
This book is an easily overlooked gem that deserves a spot on any Java programmer's book shelf. I/O is one of the basic funtions of any computer language, and this is the only text I've found that covers this vital topic in sufficient depth. Plus, it's not a bad read.
