Ive got my program, it works exactly how I want it to, I just need to save my results into a text file, and ive tried a few different ways that I found on the internet and my book but none worked correctly. This is my code:



in main I have "System.out.println(list);" that prints my linkedlist, which is want to save into a text file called "LuckyNumbers.txt"....I just cant get it right, the stuff I have tried isnt working....I might have been putting it in the wrong place, I was putting it in the main method. Anyway, thanks for the help guys.

Keep in mind this is a really bad way of doing it, but for your simple example it's probably sufficient.

You could try a simple FileWriter.
  • Create a FileWriter with the desired filename.
  • Pass your String to the write method.
  • Call the close method.
