How do I write individual bits to a file? I am encodeing Ascii charaters as 5 bits instead of 8. I need to write individual bits to a binary file. Then read that file and convert the individual bits back into ASCII file?

You can't write bits to a file, but you can writes bytes. You'll need to manage the merging of multiple 5 bit combinations into bytes and write those. The basic write operation of OutputStream deals with bytes.

Nothing lets you to do that. You must implement it handly.
