    Default How do I open a file in its pure content?

    A computer is just 1/0s. Everyone knows that..
    But is there a method in java for opening any file (txt,exe,dll) so that It appears in a string full off 1 and 0 s?
    So Of a txt file containing Hello World, if I use that (the function im asking for) then It will return String "101011010101011101011010001101101010011011010 "
    Or something simular..

    Is there a way to do this?

    Read it using an InputStream (not a Reader) byte for byte using Integer.toBinaryString on each byte.

    you should really seek the answers on search engines. you're more looking for answers that lie in the api's than for solutions to actual problems.
