You said you weren't looking for exact
You then proceeded to say you hadn't been taught enough of Java to accomplish your task - which I can't argue with.
Then your first question was along the lines of, "I've imported java.io.File, but now what other packages would I need?",
which is a question, but a fairly subjective one as there are many approaches one could take to accomplish a task.
If you had posted the code you had, as little as It may be... I wouldn't have pounced so quickly, I would have just given you a link to the Java tutorials
(Found here by the way: File I/O (Featuring NIO.2) (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes > Basic I/O)
You might want to re-read my post. I HAVE hit a brick wall because I don't believe we have gone over the subject very clearly
That is not specifically a Java related issue that WE can deal with though, It's your problem which you need to go away and deal with; i.e. read the tutorials.
Anyway, I'm just a casual contributor and It is only my opinion... don't be put off the forums on my account but clear and concise
questions will get you more replies / help.
Back to the matter at hand;
To anyone else who might be willing to help, I have posted my current code below, and there are no errors given. I am absolutely clueless to what comes next. Maybe a try/catch?
As you're new to this, lay off Exception handling for a while and just get the logic in.
Start by writing a Student class, which represents a student's attributes, then you can possibly store your read in data into an ArrayList of Students from where you can easily and repeatedly access the data (After reading the tutorials of-course).
- Obviously the way you approach it may vary.
