Hi folks,
What is all this talk about a command-line "Conversion Tool"? I couldn't see anything in the instructions that required it. Whatever you can tell me, within the bounds of fair-play, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Andrew

The Data Conversion Tool used to be part of the FBN assignment. The old assignment didn't provide a binary database. Instead you had to write a conversion utility using Data class (et al) to convert a plain ASCII data file into a binary database.

"agriffin",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.
