actually i want read a file from memory and save that file in the increasing order of the names contineously ,i am able to write only one file so ......

What I have tried:

using (FileStream stream = File.OpenRead("C:\\veer1.raw"))
                       using (FileStream writeStream = File.OpenWrite("D:\\file2.raw"))
                           BinaryReader reader = new BinaryReader(stream);
                           BinaryWriter writer = new BinaryWriter(writeStream);

                           // create a buffer to hold the bytes
                           byte[] buffer = new Byte[1024];
                           int bytesRead;

                           // while the read method returns bytes
                           // keep writing them to the output stream
                           while ((bytesRead =
                                   stream.Read(buffer, 0, 1024)) > 0)
                               writeStream.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);

If you want to write data in "increasing order of the names", you have to sort them first! I do not see corresponding code...

Hi Member 13142768,

What are the contents of the file? Names or numbers? I mean, how do you want to compare? I don't see any comparison attempt in the code - it is just reading from one file an flushing to the other; the files would be the same.

yup i want copy the same content
Member 13142768 15-May-17 2:49am
i am a fresher so how to sort i am not getting can you help me...

Where is the data that needs to be sorted in each record?
Member 13142768 15-May-17 3:15am
that will be in the memory named as veer1.raw/veer1.txt ,
for that purpuse only i am using read operation .
Member 13142768 15-May-17 3:17am
and that file i want to write multiple times in the another folder in the increasing order of the names

Hi Member 13142768,

You are reading and writing straight-away. You need to store the items that you read in memory first. For this you can use a generic list. The following lines may change:
while ((bytesRead =
        stream.Read(buffer, 0, 1024)) > 0)
    writeStream.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
List<byte[]> StrList = new List<byte[]>();
while ((bytesRead =
        stream.Read(buffer, 0, 1024)) > 0)
That is, you are reading the entire binary contents in a list as byte array entities. But I am still not sure about the contents of your file as you forgot to answer that.

After sorting you need to write the contents of the list.

The built-in sort method of list will not work here as it has binary byte array. You will need IComparer interface to assist. Here is a good solution to such sorting:

c# - Sorting list of list of bytes or list of byte arrays - Stack Overflow[^]
