    Default Help Managing Generated Data

    Hey Guys,

    I first want to say that I am some what of a novice when it comes to Java coding. I have coding experience in other programming languages but have yet to have any formal training with java. I am trying to modify an open-source java plug in that my lab and I used to analyze time-lapse images of cell populations. The program does an extraordinary job of identifying and tracking cells throughout our videos and then displays this data in a GUI. It appears to mean that the program stores all of this data as a text file. What I would to do would be to enable a way to save this text file after the data has been generated as a .txt which I can pass on to other calculations/other programs but I am unsure of how to do this. I think I have identified where the code deals directly with this text file.

    		 * Constructor for <code>text_files_mode</code>. 
    		 * <br>constructs a MyFrame from a text file that holds the frame number and 
    		 * particles information. unlike the <code>ImageProcessor</code> based constructor, 
    		 * all the particles information is set immediately on construction.
    		 * @param path full path to the file (including full file name) e.g c:\ImageJ\frame0.txt
    		public MyFrame (String path) {
    			loadParticlesFromFile (path);

    The code is free source and I'm more than happy to post the code if it will help. Please let me know as I am kind of stuck without the knowledge of how to progress.
