    Default finding the end of ram

    for(int i=0; i<76; i++) {
                test1 = raf.readLine();
                test2 = raf.readLine();
                test3 = raf.readLine();
                test4 = raf.readLine();
                test5 = raf.readLine();
                test6 = raf.readLine();
                testDouble = raf.readDouble();
                Node tempNode = new Node(test1, test2, test3, test4, test5, test6, testDouble);

    i need it so that instead of doing this 76 times it does it until it reaches the end of the of the cat.dat file (very dr.seuss name huh?)

    Default Re: finding the end of ram

    Read the API for the readLine method - given you don't post the code fully I can only guess what raf is (RandomAccessFile?), but typically this method returns null when the end of file is reached. So just check the line returned from readLine - if its null you've reached the end of the file
