From the API
The StreamTokenizer class takes an input stream and parses it into "tokens", allowing the tokens to be read one at a time.
For example with String str="A string containing 5 tokens"
If you use StreamTokenizer you 'll get 5 tokens that you may use.
1st token is 'A'
2nd token is 'string'
3rd token is 'containing'
4th token is '5'
5th token is 'tokens'
I Hope it helps!

By constantly trying one ends up succeeding. Thus: the more one fails the more one has a chance to succeed.

Alsdo check StringTokenizer,MUCH easier to use that the StreamTokenizer version if you can afford the stream to string read/write.

also check the new split() method in the String class in the new JDK 1.4
much easier than the StringTokeniezier
