    Default Line string problem


    i have problem dealing with a string in a line,
    for example i have the following lines in a .txt file
    ussdserver link from host / smpp34) is up|smpp34|2012-10-28 17:02:19
    ussdserver link from host localhost/ callme) is up|callme|2012-10-28 17:02:20
    i need from my code to get the word after the "account" word (in the first line its smpp34) and the word "up" (after the is word)

    pls help how i can do it?
    i thought about the String charAt() method but it dont work here because the words that i need can be in different places like in the example

    I think you maybe can use 'contains' to look for the lines that have a "account" in the line.
    And after that you can use the split() functiion to grab the word you need.

    Good luck.
