Hi Ron,
How're you ?
I mean the complier reply that the f.createFile( )
causes the problem.
I'm not sure what wrong it is...

I still don't understand. What is the compiler saying? Show us the entire error message.

Hi Ron,

the compiler replys about as below:


--------------------Configuration: JDK version 1.31 <Default>--------------------
C:\Documents and Settings\labuser\Desktop\FileInfo.java:11: unreported exception java.io.IOException; must be caught or declared to be thrown
if( !f.exists())f.createNewFile();
^
1 error
Process completed.

That's fairly self-explanatory, no? If you call the method f.createNewFile(), you need to do so within a try-block that catches IOException.
I don't know exactly what IO exceptions can arise, but I'd guess one of them will occur if the file name isn't valid, includes directories that don't actually exist, or names a file that can't be created because you don't have the right permissions.
