    Default Re: removing stopwords from a word list

    Hello jessie,

    Welcome to the Java Programming Forums

    I have moved this thread to - File I/O & Other I/O Streams - Java Programming Forums

    There are several things you could try. How about splitting the line String into individual words? You could use space as a delimiter.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
