    Default Re: text file

    Hello tyolu and welcome to the Java Programming Forums

    You will need to read in the text file line by line and then re-write it out again.

    There is a tutorial for reading a file line by line here:

    Is the white space between words constant or does it change?

    You can use Regular Expressions and String replace.

    Let me know and I will help you with the code.
