    Default Im so confused! Counting and Summing

    I am trying to make a program opens a file called input.txt and sums all of the numbers in it along with counting the number of numbers.

    So far i have
    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.io.*;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.IOException;
     
    public class test1 {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
        String fileName = "input.txt";
          Scanner fileScan = new Scanner(new File(fileName));
     
          int sum = 0;
          int count = 0;
    File f = new File(fileName);
    Scanner scanFile = new Scanner (fileName);
     
    String line;
        while(scanFile.hasNext()) {
            line = scanFile.next();
            count++;
    String integer;
    while (scanFile.hasNext()){
        integer = scanFile.next();

    Im really confused on how to add up integers from each line and save it to sum.

    My brain is kinda fried from fiddling with an evil UNIX program, but I think that if you want to sum,
    you do this:

    int x = scanFile.nextInt();

    although if that won't work, try scanFile.nextInteger(), though I think it's nextInt().

    However, you'll have to do this many times I think. Not quite sure on the specifics.

    If your input.txt file contains something like this:

    10
    20
    30
    40
    50
    60
    70
    80
    90
    100

    Then you could do this:

    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.IOException;
     
    public class test1 {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
     
    		int sum = 0;
    		int count = 0;
    		int size = 0;
     
    		String fileName = "input.txt";
    		Scanner fileScan = new Scanner(new File(fileName));
     
    		String line;
    		// Get amount of lines for setting up array
    		while (fileScan.hasNext()) {
    			line = fileScan.nextLine();
    			size++;
    		}
    		fileScan.close();
     
    		//System.out.println("Number of lines: " + size);
     
    		fileScan = new Scanner(new File(fileName));
    		// Setup array to store numbers
    		String[] array = new String[size];
     
    		while (fileScan.hasNext()) {
    			line = fileScan.nextLine();
    			// Add line to array
    			array[count] = line;
    			count++;
    		}
     
    		// Print contents of Array
    		for (int a = 0; a < array.length; a++){
    			System.out.println(array[a]);
    			// Math stuff here to add numbers..
    		}
    	}
    }

    It will read the file line by line and add each number to an array.

    size will be the amount of numbers in the file.
    You need to add the sum code to the loop which iterates through the array.

    This should also help you:

    Why read the file twice? Why not just read it once, sum the numbers you read, and keep a counter of how many numbers you have read?

    Why would you need an array just have

    int count = 0;
    int sum = 0;
    while(file.hasNext()) {
    sum+= (int)(Integer.parseInt(fileScan.nextLine());
    count++;
    }

    Ok... I just won't store the numbers I read in, in an array because that isn't a requirement.

    Hey look Zula implemented it. I'm sure it was really hard!
