    		// get which file you want to read and write
    		File file = new File("D://test.txt");
    		try {
    			// check whether the file is existed or not
    			if (file.exists()) {
    				// create a new file if the file is not existed
    			// new a writer and point the writer to the file
    			BufferedWriter writer = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(file));
    			// writer the content to the file
    			writer.write("I write something to a file.");
    			// always remember to close the writer
    			writer = null;
    		} catch (IOException e) {
    		try {
    			// new a reader and point the reader to the file
    			BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(file));
    			String line = "";
