Hey guys,

I just finished a class in Java and am excited to make something fun like a trivia game with Swing. But I have come up against my first question - I learned to tokenize data in text files - but that was only on one piece of data.

Let me clarify - I know how to take a text file that has say 3 pieces of data per line, like: Towels 5.00 Housewares and tokeize that into 3 pieces of seperate data, BUT if I want to put 3 pieces of data for my trivia game like A) Question B) Answer and C) Point total I have problems because the QUESTION would have several spaces in it.

Can someone explain to me how I can make this work?

Hint: you can tokenize on characters other than spaces.

Yep! I just found it... I can tokenize using Delimiters. That will be easy and will work perfect for me! Thanks a bunch!

When you really feel like diving in head first, you might consider using an XML format and parsing that. But that's probably a bit of a way down the road...
