    Default How to use Scanner for files?

    I have used File in java to read the list of files in a folder.
    I want to further find the text in these files using Scanner.

    You should read the API doc for the Scanner class. Go to this site and Find Scanner in the lower left column: Java Platform SE 6
    Click on Scanner and its doc will come to the right hand section.
