hi guys

i have a test file like raju.txt

naga raju rama raju

using java.util.Scanner we can split like


naga
raju
rama
raju


the code is


public class FileRead1 {

public static void main(String arg[])
{
try
{
File f=new File("test.txt");
Scanner ss=new Scanner(f);

while(ss.hasNext())
{
String hh=ss.next();

System.out.println(""+hh);

//System.out.println(""+hh);
}
}catch(Exception e){}
}

}
}
what my idea is how to split the file like 5,8,10 charatcers like and store it in array .


give the idea.

thanks
naga

Plese use code tags round quoted code; it makes it easier to read.

You would have to
  • Read the file line by line; each line is returned as a String.
  • (Optional): Append the line to a StringBuilder object, if you wish to split the whole file rather than splitting each line
  • Get the length of the String you wish to split
  • Divide the length by the number of letters you want in each piece
  • Set up an array of appropriate length
  • Use a for loop to go along the String and get substrings.
  • I think that would work for what you are suggesting.

    Please don't post the same question multiple times.
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
