    That will be very expensive. About the only way to do this would be to read the entire file and count the number of lines. Lets imagine there are 5 lines. Then read the entire file again up to line 5. Read the entire file again up to line 4. Read the entire file again up to line 3. etc.

    This can be done using Java's RandomAccessFile and File classes with some clever usage of the methods provided.

    Please post the code and post what is being read by the program.

    Everything on a computer is a number. Some numbers represent characters and can be viewed as characters by casting them or converting them using some class's constructor or method.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
