Hi,

I am reading all files from directory.........i,e

File orgf = new File("E:/ImageProject/ImageDir/");

String[] OrgFile=orgf.list();

It returns all files available in ImageDir....but i want to read limited i.e only 5 or 10 files from that direcotry...


Is there any file function..........i don't want to set limit after reading....all file.............set to limit while reading...........

No, you can't read only a subset.
Why do you want to do this?

You do realize that the list() method doesn't actually parse each of those files, right? It's only reading the file list in the directory (which is really just a type of file).

Since this has nothing to do with JSP, I'm going to move it to our I/O and Streams forum.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
