If i have a text file with each line containing two bits of information about rooms, such as:
whereby the first bit of information refers to the room name which should be stored in a String array called roomNames and the second bit refers to the capacity of the rooms which should be stored in a String array called roomCapacity, how do i seperate the two so that this can happen?
i was thinking tokenizers... but dont know how to use them to do this cheers [ February 02, 2006: Message edited by: Sam Bluesman ]
In JDK 1.4 and later, the String.split() method is easier to use than the StringTokenizer class.
String line = "Room1, 120"; String data = line.split("[ \t,]+");
The argument to split() is a regular expression, which scares some people, but they're really not so bad. The expression I've shown will break tokens at any combination of space, tab, and comma characters.
