I believe IBM also has a patent for faster-than-light communication, which could greatly improve the interplanetary telephone network.

I don't know, if it was IBM, but searching for such a patent shows this one: http://www.google.de/patents/about?id=csYDAAAAEBAJ&dq=6,025,810 Citing from page 16 of the PDF file: | The present invention takes a transmission of energy, and instead of | sending it through normal time and space, it pokes a small hole into | another dimension, thus, sending the energy through a place which allows | transmission of energy to exceed the speed of light. That's cool! I would like to have such a device for transmitting the lottery numbers back in time :-) -- Frank Buss, fb@frank-buss.de http://www.frank-buss.de, http://www.it4-systems.de
Hi Guys,
Thank you for all the suggestions. Finally i used unsigned char to
write my data into the a file and have successfully created a binary
file as i wanted.
