hello all I am new to Java and doing a code to count the specific words in a text file and print them with the line number. The code below is the sample main method which I havenot combined with other classes. The problem I encountered is that this main method only print the odd lines in the text files. Anyone can show me how to resolve it? Thanks.

You first problem lies here:
In the if statement itself, you call inFile.readLine() which reads a line but you don't do anything with it so it gets lost. Whenever you read a line, you need to store/use it. Since this sounds like a homework problem, I won't give you the answer but that should get you on the right track. Brian
