    Default Write something to the next available line in a file

    The title basically says. What I'm trying to do it to get the output of the my program to write to a text file (which i have working) but I want to to go a the next empty line every time the program is ran instead of over-writing what is already saved. Ived tried making a Scanner and using nextLine() but that apperently only works for handling input not writing to a text file. Any help would be appreciated!

    How are you writing to the file? Which class are you using? Have you looked at what constructors that class has?

    Read PrintWriter or FileWriter class if you are writing in a file using PrintWriter or FileWriter and see it's constructor's docs, you will for sure find the solution.
