comment What is preferred for file I/O in Java?
"If you only do I/O by reading / writing large chunks, then the BufferedXxx classes might might actually reduce throughput a bit."... I do not get this point. Isn't the whole point of using BufferedXxx in the first place is so that you do IO by chunks and not single byte/charater etc and that reduces the number of system calls to the kernel? Can you please explain what exactly you meant?
