Hi all,i am trying to read from directory containing other files too.
It has listed the directory and files inside the parent directory. But i am not able to read the file which i want.
Please any suggestions!

Well, first of all you shouldn't use == to compare the contents of two strings for equality. That just tests to see if the two strings are the same object. You should use the equals method:

And secondly your code (at line 16) appears to assume that your current working directory has a file named "myfile.txt" in it. I'm not sure why you have all of that code looking through files in directories and then you just ignore everything that code did.

Thanks paul. Yeah,putting line 16 doesn't make any sense.
Actually i have twisted this code many times just for the sake of trying,so forgot to remove it.
Now this is happening and seems perfect,reading every single line of a file.
