    What is "s"? variable names should show what the contents of the variable. "s" has no meaning.

    Did you read my last post? The method that builds the Vector still does not return it so other methods can use it.

    The code's formatting is still poor.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    A better name would be currMaxRating??? instead of s. Does it hold an index or is it a reference to a film object or the value of the max rating?

    how else to format the code
    Format it so that the }s are in the same column beneath the start of the line that has the {

    Very few things should be in the first column:
    public class
    and the ending } for the class.

    The code has to save where that value came from.
    Either a reference to the object
    or an index into the Vector for where that object is stored.

    I have it printing out the highest rated film now not sue if its the correct way but its doing waht i want it to do thanks for the help

    //******************QUESTION**********************\\

    Create a simple text file that contains information on Films like that in question 1. The format of the file may look like this:
    Top Gun, Tom Cruise, 110, 3.7, 1012
    Training Day, Denzel Washington, 122, 4.5, 21786
    .....
    5 or 6 entries will suffice for this example but your program should work with many more.
    Write a Java method called populateFilmVector(String path) to do the following:
    i. Read the Film file line by line and tokenize each line to get the Film attributes.
    ii. Create a Film object from the tokens (You may need to do some type conversions here).
    iii. Add the Film object to the Vector (this Vector will be a class variable with class scope)

    Question 3
    Write a method called bestFilm() that searches through the FilmVector and returns the best film based on the ratings. The method should return the Film object


    ************************************************** ***************

    that was the program i had to write
