    Default Is scanner the right choice?

    Hi All

    I have my application get a file on my machine and display the raw text in a text area. I need to filter/search for keywords and display the key words on another text area.

    Sounds pointless I know but there is a method in my madness if I can get this to function. I am fairly new to all this so got Java books out all over the place. Driving my mrs mad

    Any help very much appreciated.
