Converting Signed byte to "unsigned" byte for storing to Harddrive etc

Liam S. Crouch asked:

Open original thread
Lets say i am working with a file format that takes bytes from 0-255 for some input. In Java, that is a bit hard with the allways signed byte.

How do i convert a int to byte and get the correct binary value?

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
