I try to run a Java script program to replace a 32 bit string. The string contains the value of [A-Za-z0-9.-_].

The Input file contains 288450 lines.
when i try to execute the program.
I got the error message as "String index out of range: -19" and i got the output with only 86934 lines.

Can you please help me out for this issue, i am new to Java.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Can you post the code snippet that shows which line of your program throws that exception?

Java? Or JavaScript?

(If it's JavaScript, we'll probably move this to our HTML and JavaScript forum.)
