Byte vs. Character Streams
What is considered the most "primitive I/O"? The same article also mentions that Byte Streams are kind of a low-level I/O. This might be a silly question but I had to ask, what is the difference between low-level anything and high-level anything? Is high level more efficient? Does it have more functions? Does low-level have any advantages over high level and vice-versa?
