I have a text file that I want to go through and put specific entries in to an arrayList (or any other list). I want to select a line by matching up a piece of string. For example, I want to take all lines that have "B204" somewhere in them and put them into an arrayList. I already know how to read the file: BufferedReader textline = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("textfile.txt")); what do I do next? Thanks Micah
Micah, welcome to the Ranch! We don't have a lot of rules, but we do have our Naming Policy. Specifically, last names should not be initials. First and middle names are fine, but last names should be "realistic" looking. Doesn't have to be your real last name (though we prefer that), but something more than just a letter. Head over to your profile and change your display name please to conform to our policy. Thanks!
