    Default Level

    Hi

    I am programming a Pac man game. But I don't know how I can create a Level. I have upload the file, where you can see how the level should look. P stands for Pacman, M for his opponent, and # is a power up, * is the wall and ... is the stuff which he has to collect. My first idea, was that I convert this file into an Array. Then I could use a for loop, to display it on the Screen.
    But how can access the file?
    Can someone please help me?

    Thank you for your reply

    I have tried to implement it, but it doesn't work.
    public class Level {
     
    	File file;
     
    	public void read() throws IOException {
     
    		FileReader data = new FileReader(file);
     
    		BufferedReader b = new BufferedReader(data);
    		int row = 0;
    		String content = b.readLine();
     
    		while (content != null) {
    			row++;
    			content = b.readLine();
    		}
    		data.close();
     
    		data = new FileReader(file);
    		b = new BufferedReader(data);
     
    		char[] chararray = new char[1000];
    		int i = 0;
    		while ((i = data.read(chararray)) >= 0) {
     
    		}
     
    		char field[][] = new char[row][i / row];
     
    		data.close();
     
    	}
     
    }

    Explain "does not work." If there are error messages, post them. If the program's behavior is not as desired, describe what it's doing and how that is different than your expectations. Post sample runs if possible.
