    Post Need Help For My Program

    Please. I really need some help. I want to design a program that reads all the words from a file with a dictionary of english words, after that the program asks for part of the word you are looking for and finds all of the words with part you put in. I do not know how to get started at all and I would appreciate some help. Thankyou

    Hello ubaral,

    Welcome to the forums.

    You could read in the file using the Scanner class. See - http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...ner-class.html

    Take a look here, there are lots of code examples - Java Code Snippets and Tutorials

    Thankyou, but I know how to use the Scanner class to look through my text file for the specific string I want. Ive done that, but my problem is that I want to be able to search for just a small part of a word in a txt file and the program shows me all the words with that small part of the word I inputed. I think I need to use substring method, but how do i go about doing this??
    THANK-YOU
