On a playbook, I am trying to use the blackberry.io.file API to open a local file. From the blob, what is the correct way to read the binary file byte by byte?
I know there is the blogToString API, but does it work with binary file?

The Blob interface has a "getBytes" method, but I've never used it.
I have documented the missing Blob documentation here

I have clicked on the link you posted, but I only find the issue with no documentation. Do you mean you are going to create one?
I have looked at https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-TabletOS/bl

As I stated earlier, the getBytes method is not currently in our documentation, the link is to an issue to track this so that it will be fixed at some point.
Here is a link to the gears Blob which I believe should match the implementation on the smartphone (atleast in 5.0). I do not know if this method is implemented on the playbook, best way is try and see.

Have RIM updated the missing documentation for the Blob yet?
I've been using the Blob.getBytes(). However, I found that it is leaking memory each time, getBytes() is called, even after releasing the returned byte. Is it a known issue? Is there any other workaround?
I'm testing on PlayBook 2.0.1.
