I have a text file that contains names: "Joe Jack Albert Lisa Jim Elizabeth Tina Tom" I can read the file, but how can I remove the longest name from each line and save the file (without the longest names) with a new name.I think I should use StringTokenizer but how? Thank's for your help!
One way is to use an InputStream capable of reading a line at a time and then feed each line into a StringTokenizer. then read the tokens from the Tokeniser into a collection, maybe sort by length and write out all but the longest string.
Here's a basic approach. Read in each line and use a StringTokenizer to break it into individual words, saving the words in a list (e.g., ArrayList). Then loop through the list searching for the longest word. Remove the longest word from the list and write out the remaining ones in the output file. Continue until all lines have been processed.
