    Default How can I modify a text so that it doesn't contain two equal numbers?

    I would like to create a program that takes some files and modifies them in this way:
    The files should contain text formatted in this way:

    ##############
    #various comments#
    ##############
    something{
        identifier=1234
        anotherIdentifier=1235
        anotherOne=12345
        //and so on...
    }//I need only this
     
    #Comments are sometimes made this way
     
    somethingAgain{
     
        #comments that explains what's below them
        I:dentifier:something, I, do, not, need
     
        #see ^that
        A:notherIdentifier:boolean
     
        //and so on..
    }

    and I have to make so that the numbers contained in something{} in all the files don't match.

    I could ask to make so that the input file is only one, and it is formatted this way:

    identifier=1234
    anotherIdentifier=1235
    anotherOne=12345
    //and so on...

    but I don't know how to do the rest of the program...
    That's what I've done (the names of the classes, package etc. are in Italian and there's some useless code that NetBeans prevents me from deleting):

    package confronto;
     
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.io.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    /**

    public class confrontoTesti extends javax.swing.JFrame {
     
        /**
         * Creates new form confrontoTesti
         */
        public confrontoTesti() {
            initComponents();
        }
     
        /**

         */
        public static void modificaTesto (String percorsoIniziale, String percorsoFinale){
            try{
                FileReader f= new FileReader(percorsoIniziale);
                String a=f.toString();
                int l = a.length();
                for (int i=0; i<l; i++){
                    char c1 = a.charAt(i);
                    String n = "";

                    }
                    int n1 = Integer.getInteger(n);
                    try{
                        try (PrintWriter writer = new PrintWriter(percorsoFinale, "UTF-8")) {
                            writer.println(n1);
                        }
                    }

    Default Re: How can I modify a text so that it doesn't contain two equal numbers?

    For the first version of the program I would not use any GUI. Write a console program that reads the file, parses the lines and saves the numeric parts for comparison against future lines. Save each line in a list that will be used to write out the updated version of the file. When a match is found, change the number part of the line before saving it in the list.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
