Hi, i've gotta problem with it. i tried to use BufferedReader and then StringTokenizer, and than use a loop that will run random times, but it didn't work how i expected. I want to read whole file and print out couple of randomly chosen words :\
i've just started programming in java, and feel a bit lost in all this, sorry if it's a silly question

Before that, i tried with streamtokenizer, it compiles and runs but the words chosen by programm are really strange, like: "In and honour you here here peace honour In " and so on, some words are chosen lots of times.

In and honour you here here peace honour In

so, code looks like that:

Welcome to the JavaRanch.
What do you expect the program to do?
What does your input look like?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
