byte array - writing it out to a file

I have an array of bytes which i want to write out to a
file.
What classes do i need that do this??

i know you can do stuff with binary writer and stream
writer, but how do i create a file with my data in it?

Biteme,

You mean this one?
//using System.IO;
using(BinaryWri ter binWriter =
new BinaryWriter(Fi le.Open(@"C:\Te st2\Test.txt", FileMode.Create )))
{
byte[] bb = new byte[] {65,66,67};
binWriter.Write (bb);
}

I hope this helps,

Cor

Just use a FileStream - the MSDN docs for it have some examples.
Using a BinaryWriter when you just want to write out an array of bytes
is overkill - BinaryWriters are really for writing sequences of
primitives etc.

Hi, I've got an HttpWebResponse object, all working fine. I'm getting the underlying stream and currently writing it to a file using the ReadToEnd() method. All happy. I want to do a bit of manipulation before writing this to the disk; can anyone point me in the right direction of how to copy it to a byte array so I can make my mods before writing it to the disk?

How do I save an array of bytes to a file? I am binding a update parameter to a fileupload control. It passes the file to my object as a Filebytes datatype. I am assuming it is just an array of bytes and I can assign it to a byte() array. Just not sure how to save it as a file.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
