Hello. I have been lurking around here getting tips and advice for quite some time: it's greatly appreciated. I am, however, stumped, and need some help using Stringtokenizer. I will comment parts of code to keep it confidential, but what is posted should explain:
Have you been told to use StringTokenizer? It is described here as legacy code and users are "discouraged" from using it in new code.
You can get individual lines from a text file by various techniques; I think the Scanner#nextLine() method might be the simplest. Then you can use the java.lang.String#split method to separate it into words.
You can do all sorts of things with those words, even putting them into a java.util.Set<String> which has a contains method.

I am not required to do anything; this is a personal project I'm working on. The problem I had was finding a way to do this. I am currently taking a JAVA class and they are fans of using the Princeton Standard Libraries to try to "simplify" things...meanwhile, it's not convenient when trying to do slightly more difficult things.
