Hello everybody,
I am parsing a text file using stream tokenizer.
on command line I invoke the class ( code is given below) as :
javac Tokenexample myfile.txt "*"
and it gives me correct output .. i.e delimits whole file based on Word, Character and Numbers.
My question is : I want to Write the output to a different file say another text file and put all Words together.. all Characters together... can anyone please tell me how ?
the code for Tokenizing and mytext.txt is follows,
many thanks

public class Tokenexample {
public static void main(String args[]) throws FileNotFoundException,IOException {

FileReader file = new FileReader( args[0]);
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(file);
StreamTokenizer st = new StreamTokenizer(in);

char [] c = args[1].toCharArray();

for (int i=0; i < c.length; i++) {

System.out.println("Whitespace will include ' " + c[i] + "'" );
st.whitespaceChars(c[i] , c[i]);


int tokval;

while ((tokval = st.nextToken() ) != StreamTokenizer.TT_EOF ) {

switch (tokval) {

case StreamTokenizer.TT_WORD :

System.out.println("Word token \"" + st.sval + "\"");

case StreamTokenizer.TT_NUMBER :

System.out.println("Number token \"" + st.nval + "\"");

default :

System.out.println("Character '" + (char) tokval + "'");


This is written to a file
How can this be a file ?
123 is not a b c d

I modified the source to allow the complete for loop to show! Carl

Hi , i am a beginner and did a program which stored
the output in a seperate txt. file, in my case the output was a
string named str[].
the concept was like this:
DataOutputStream out1 = new DataOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("text1.txt));
for (int i=0; i<str.length; i++)>

I hope this helps u little bit, if this is not correct pls, let me know.
