Hey Guys;

I read in a file as follows;

Also i want to write the file back out to a new location;

I have that so far, but dont know what kind of format variable BufferedWriter wants, it wont accept ArrayList line and i cant put ArrayList lines into a file; Also how do i specify where to write the file on my harddrive and what to call it.

This way, comrade

I must add also that Jakarta Commons IO offers some IO utilities which do all that you want easier.

For instance, as simple as this:

Besides methods like copyFile(File srcFile, File destFile). Also, the IOUtils class have methods to copy files from one InputStream into an OutputStream or a Reader into a Writer or combinations of them.

Take a look at it.

I hope that helps!
