How would you go about removing all punctuation besides ones like this "my-o-my" and then count up all occurances of the every word and print it out. Doin all this while reading in a file that has text it in from a speech. Thanks!
You should look at classes like String, StringBuffer, StringTokenizer, InputStream, and FileReader. These should provide many of the methods you need to accomplish this task.
