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. Thanks Mark
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! [ July 27, 2006: Message edited by: Edwin Dalorzo ]
