Hi!
I've got a .txt file with eight lines. Each line contains integers separated by commas. I want to read these numbers. What's the best way of doing it? FileInputStream seems to be pretty unfriendly for this application.
Thanks,
Sasikanth

Use a Reader so you can use a readLine. Pass the String object to a StringTokenizer to get each number.

Use a FileReader chained to a BufferedReader. E.g.

And use in.readLine().
