Hello all,
I'm currently writing a java program that allows a user to input a name that is then saved to a .txt file. It works fine if I run the program once but when I run the program again it adds the data to the same line. Is there a way I can make the program add the names to a new line of text in the .txt file. My program has multiple classes, belows is only the one that actually writes to to the file. Thanks in advance

The API is a wonderful thing. Note that PrintWriter has a println() method that you can use instead of print() as you have.

I am also moving this to our I/O And Streams forum where these types of questions are discussed.
