Dear Experts,

i encountered some thing very strange problem today ,

actually i had

final IFile file = newProject.getFile(new Path("abc.txt"));
this will get created on runtime with some message instead i am trying to copy the contents of b.txt to a.txt

so initially it was

so when the file a.txt gets created it creates with "This is the initial file contents" this message

instead of this i want the contents to be from b.txt so i did

final IFile file = newProject.getFile(new Path("abc.txt"));

as it is failing at OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file.tostring());

i think the outstream takes absolute value , but how to achieve this. please inform

What about using the full path then ?
