Substring capture To Write A list Of instances in A New Document

Hi Guys,

About my Program:
Im brand new to Java and this is further development for my first program. So far my program captures the data between two strings and stores the substring value within an array. Once all the documents have been read in from the folder and all instances are captured. They are then sorted within the array and printed in a new document.

What I need to do now:

Basically i need to know capture another value between two other strings and return it below the first set as the value is of a different type.

i need to return a value between a string beginning with the value "<$" and ending in "=", the problem is. I've tried testing the changes variable parameter in my Working existing document but it doesn't write anything once the change is made. Does this mean that i cannot use "$" symbol as a value?

below is my code, as mentioned this works fully for one set of values, Please can anyone help me im really struggling with this.

regards Nick

Locking; continue in the other thread.

(And you're not "literally" brand new, because you've been posting Java questions for a couple of months.)
