is used to write bytes representing primitive data types.
It writes to another output stream
public DataOutputStream(OutputStream out) Construct a data output stream.
public void flush() throws IOException — Flushes the stream, ie. makes sure all data reaches its destination. public final int size() — Return the number of bytes written so far. public void write(int b) throws IOException — Writes the low-order eight bits of the argument. public final void writeBoolean(boolean b) throws IOException — Writes a boolean as a 1-byte value. — True is written as 00000001, false is written as 00000000. public void writeBytes(String s) throws IOException — Write out the low eight bits of each character of the string. public void writeDouble(double v) throws IOException public void writeFloat(float f) throws IOException public void writeInt(int i) throws IOException public void writeLong(long l) throws IOException public final void writeShort(int s) throws IOException
There are many more methods than these. See the on-line documentation for a complete list.

How many bytes will the following write?
out.writeBoolean( true ); out.writeBoolean( false );
