Well, when you say that "it's not work", that implies that you actually tried something. So, what have you tried? Having a comment that says "readLine one by one" isn't really trying, is it?

Show us what have you tried so far, that doesn't work, and we'll give you some hints to point you to why it doesn't work.

Isn't this post in a few other forums ? I've seen this twice before. Be sure you only post in the correct forum and only ask once.

Also, it would help if you posted the ACTUAL code you have tried. And the error you receive. This will help us see if there was a typo or anything like that in your code.

Actually I searched and didn't find any duplicates of this post.

Read carefully what the String#startsWith() method takes as its parameters.
And, as people have said, please post the code and your results.

Ok thanks very much
Here is my code
This is FileFormat.java

Here is class ReadFile.java to read the text file.

Now I have two questions:
1/ When I run the program, it appear the error, help me to correct it.
java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "123 test1y"
at java.lang.NumberFormatException.forInputString(NumberFormatException.java:48)
at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:456)
at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:497)
at com.goodsw.myroute.ReadFile.read(ReadFile.java:24)
at com.goodsw.myroute.ReadFile.main(ReadFile.java:40)

2/
In the my code, i only set value of x, y , z, t (format.setX(), format.setY()�..) when line startWith(�123�), but I have many, many lines something like this it is line that start with an integer number with three digits:
So what kind of regex I can try? The idea as following:


Please help me to slove my problem, thanks very much.

A NumberFormatException thrown by Integer#parseInt means that whatever you have passed to it is not an integer when printed out. Please check that the lines are actually delimited by tabs. Try the standard regex for whitespace as a delimiter instead of "\\t"; I think it is "\\s", but not certain.

And why are you calling the argument to String#startsWith "regex"? I have already mentioned that point.
