I have declared the following:



I then tried to write to an output file with:



The System.out.println sends everything to the console window perfectly, but my output file remains blank and it doesn't seem to want to write to the file. Any help?

Thanks. I did a bit of researching and ended up using out.flush(). Same effect I guess.

out.flush() will take all the buffered data in the memory to the disk. you still can write something more.

out.close() will finalize the writing and close the connection stream to the file, you can't write anything anymore.

Try without BufferedWriter
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(outFileName));
out.flush();

You can use out.close() without invoking out.flush(), it will flush buffered data automatically.
