Hi,

I am reading form a .data file but it only seems to be reading the first line of the code when I in more than the next code in the loop




It works well in the example but if I in in the loop something like



it only reads the first line
Any idea?

Thanks

Also, you can't call dis.readLine() twice while still expecting the same line to be returned. Any method that reads part of a file (or InputStream or Reader) moves forward in the file (or InputStream or Reader). Anything that was just read won't be re-read again unless you use the mark / reset method pair.
