Hey everyone,

I am reading java file into a JTextPane and some of the lines are getting skipped over, and I cant seem to find where, I think I just need another set of eyes to look at my read method.



any help would be great

Thanks,
Hunter

You have received an answer at the other forum, so why haven't you updated your posting here with the answer?

I was planning on coming back to it later on, since I am at work and have other things to be doing. I marked the topic as resolved to indicate I had found an answer, so no one would waste their time looking for one. Don't get so bent out of shape.

There is not time like the present. As soon as you accepted an answer on the other site you should have indicated that on this site. It would have taken an extra minute of your time to do this.

Why should the 5-10 people who read your question on this site first have to check with the other site to see if an answer has been found?

I will continue to get "bent out of shape" when you think that your time is more valuable than our time.

So the solution to this problem was how I was checking whether lines had comments, I was testing if a line contained comments, then only printing the line if the lines STARTED with comments, so lines like:



wont be printed because the line doesn't start with a comment.
