I am having a problem figuring exactly what I need to do on this problem. I want to read in a file, place it in an array. After that it needs to be sent to a class that calculates the charge. The second part is supposed to output the results to another file(txt). I think I have the first part down. What I am wondering is how does one instantiate an object array, place the results into the appropiate array and then take that and print to a text file???Here is the code I have so far, any help will keep me from freakin' out...

I think you need a Printwriter in the try and catch block to print the results to the .txt files
for Example
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(outFile.txt));
All you codes goes here.
}catch(IOException e)
