I have a JSP where I am trying to display a string that may or may not have new line characters within it ("\n"). I want to display this string in a textarea on my JSP. What I need to do this is to have a method that will replace all new line characters with "\\n"
Could someone please give me some help in creating this method? I can not seem to get the output I need?

Use a StringTokenizer?
and we appreciate your visit, but "MOGUL77777" is not a valid name according to the JavaRanch naming standards.
Please edit your profile and select a new name which meets the requirements.
ta,
Dave
