I am a novice for Java, just trying out to master the skills.
I am doing a self assignment in which I read data from a csv file or text file and print the no of lines
Now my text file has empty lines, I want to skip reading the empty line. The code which I have written takes all the lines and print the no of lines, I am posting my code here, please check it and guide me on how to avoid reading empty lines and go to next line.
My present code is
Please guide and advice me on how to skip the empty lines, while counting
In pseudo code
1) Remove all white spaces. (Empty quotes are called white spaces.e.g. " ") Check out the String API to find existing methods to trim (hint) these white spaces
2) Then check the length (hint) of the string. If it is zero, then the line is empty.
3) If empty, skip, else process (hint hint)
