:cry: Does anyone know how to do a new line in java when you are writting to a binary file. I know you can use the newLine(); function when you are writing to a normal textfile, but what do you use when you are writting to a binnary file.

I do not think you can create new lines in binary file because all new lines are interpreted as a character. In an ASCII file newlines do not show as characters and instead create newlines as you intended.

Remember, all a newline is usually, is the ascii character 10 and ascii character 13, which is a Linefeed, and/or carriage return respectively. We normally just do not see them as characters as you would in a binary file.
