I'm having some problems compiling a program. I'm using a FileReader to read in a .txt file and then do some fun extraction on the strings before spitting it out to the screen at the moment.
I keep getting:
Error : Exception java.io.FileNotFoundException must be caught, or it must be declared in the throws clause
of this method.
FindCosts.java line 21 new FileReader(input));
When I try to compile it. I am using CodeWarrior 5 for the Mac if that makes any difference. This is my first time using FileReader so I'm wondering if I did it wrong. The code is below.

Hi Jax,
Any time you use any I/O method except File you are required to use a try/catch loop:
