    Default Re: how to parse structured txt

    The main tools for parsing a String are the methods in the String class. See the split() method for example.
    Also the StringTokenizer class can be useful in some cases.
    Also see the Double and Integer classes for parse methods to convert Strings to numeric values.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
