seems to work for me.

Can you be more specific in what the problem is? Did you compile it? Did you run it? What were the exact commands you gave? Did it show an error? what is in the file you are trying to display?

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Hi, fred
No, there is no problem neither in its compilation nor in execution

Actually i had a file in D: with name TEST.TXT and want to see that very file

and for file display i was trying this program, but i am unable to see my file (i want that it should get open)

Seems good to me also.. It is displaying in my machine also.
Is your java file and the .txt file in the same directory? if no the store them into the same directory any run the program.
