java.io.FileNotFoundException: xanadu.txt (The system cannot find the file specified)

According to this thread my program should throw NoSuchFileException because that file does not exist.


My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.

Always read the API docs.

NoSuchFileException is thrown by classes in the java.nio package but FileInputStream is part of the java.io package and not the java.nio package.
