Hi All,
This should be really basic, Just passing one file (in my project folder, triple checked that) into command line at args[0]

receiving error

The line in question is File f.... Any ideas? Suggestions?



Sincerely Stuck,
J

You obviously didn't provide any command line arguments to the Java program.

The problem is I did everything that would indicate that I did. Went into Netbeans project properties, selected it as my main class, selected myText.txt as my only argument, and pressed ok.

Checked a few times to make sure the text name is correct and the text file is in project folder so don't have to specify pathname in argument.

Even tried specifying absolute path in argument. Will try from command line too to see if something having to do with netbeans.

What happened:

I got a 0 return in Netbeans for S.O.P(args.length); and a 1 return at command line for S.O.P(for args.length);



So it was being passed in at command line and not at Netbeans. Strange.


Finally figured out that right clicking and running one class in a project, *even* if others not connected in any way, does not give you the same results as right clicking and running the main project.

When I did the latter, I got the a 1 output in Netbeans.

*whew* ...at this rate...

Thanks.

I am not convinced that using NetBeans or return values from exit are the best way to program if you are a beginner.
