NullPointerException at StringTokenizer

Dear friends,

The following code gives me a problem.

I am passing two command-line arguments. First arg is an input file name with full path. Second arg is an output folder with full path.
Example first arg: C:\Program Files\MyFolder\Test.txt
Example second arg: C:\Program Files\MyFolder\Output

When i run the code using

java "C:\Program Files\MyFolder\Test.txt" "C:\Program Files\MyFolder\Output"

the above code gives me a NullPointerException at [// 1].

I am checking while(in.readLine() != null) when the end of file is reached. But still its by-passing the condition and executes the while loop.

Following is the stack trace:

Kindly provide your valuable help.
