i have this problem... i am using the StreamTokenizer to read one word at a time... however, when i read words like 3G.. the StreamTokenizer will break up the 3 and G and read them seperately.. how do i solve this prob ? the code is as follows :
while (innerReader.ttype != StreamTokenizer.TT_EOF)
if (innerReader.ttype == StreamTokenizer.TT_WORD)
record = innerReader.sval;
record = record.toLowerCase();
else if (innerReader.ttype == StreamTokenizer.TT_NUMBER)

Hi Roy -
I haven't used the StreamTokenizer before, but the docs do say it reads a byte at a time; therein lies your problem.
To get the behavior you want, you'll probably have to read in a line at a time, and use the java.io.StringTokenizer class to parse it.
