Now Im tryin to write a mini-app that can read the header, figure out what data to expect and then read through the data parsing each record into 3 fields and print them to the screen?
what im tryin to do is generalize the cases and not use any concept that each feild may of some size.
But in doing that Im able to read the data through the header using buffered Header and readLine. But when i try to read the data by saving in reae readLine I wont know its a letter or a digit. Also how do i tokenize it..if I dont know the lenghts and i dont use a marker such as coma or whatever... could i use Character.letteror digit...
Also if I use datastream to read the data..then i can find out its letter or digit but how will i find the end of line and then go to next line..is there somethin like readline in datastream..also how do i find the tokens...
Is there something like help in java like c or c++ where we can find all the functions...
