Hey there,
I hope this is the right place to post this question. I'm new here - so forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place.

Can someone give me some code for reading from a text file and assigning each line to a variable?

The text file looks like this:

200000
7.5
30

The text file is located at C:/JavaStuff
I'm using swing and trying to do some calculations on the numbers above and displaying the output in the GUI.

Thanks in advance - you guys have been awesome.

Heather

Thanks - I think I'm moving in the right direction, but now I'm getting errors when I try to assign the array elements to specific variables. I need to do this so that I can call another reusable class that actually does the math I need. I need that class to recognize the variables.

Please look at my code below. Also, all the code that comes under this is giving errors (it worked before) so I think maybe part of my problem is the brackets - but I can't see it. Please help me.

public void rfile(){
try{
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("c:\\javastuff\\mortgage.txt"));
String line =" ";
int counter = 0;
double[] data = new double[3];
for(int x = 0; x < data.length; x++)
{
data[x] = Double.parseDouble(in.readLine());
if (data[x]=="data0")
{
double loanamt = data[x];
}
else if (data[x]=="data1")
{
double yrsnum = data[x];
}
else if (data[x]=="data2")
{
double rate = data[x];}
}

}
in.close(); //close the reader
}catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("File Error!");
e.printStackTrace();
}

Update! I found a missing bracket. Here's my code now:

_________________________________________________________________

public void rfile(){
try{
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("c:\\javastuff\\mortgage.txt"));
String line =" ";
int counter = 0;
double[] data = new double[3];
for(int x = 0; x < data.length; x++)
{
data[x] = Double.parseDouble(in.readLine());
if (data[x]=="data0")
{
double loanamt = data[x];
}
else if (data[x]=="data1")
{
double yrsnum = data[x];
}
else if (data[x]=="data2")
{
double rate = data[x];}
}
}
}
in.close(); //close the reader
}catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("File Error!");
e.printStackTrace();
}

____________________________________________________________________

and here are the error messages I'm still getting - the bracket only removed three of the 13 messages:
