    import java.util.*;
    import java.io.*;
    public class UpdateFile
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
                    BufferedReader in=new BufferedReader(new FileReader(new File("data.txt")));
    		PrintWriter out=new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(new File("result.txt")));
    		String str="";
    			ArrayList<String> url=new ArrayList<String>();
                            StringBuilder sq = new StringBuilder();
    			String parts[]=str.split("\\s+");
    			BufferedReader in2=new BufferedReader(new FileReader(new File("token.txt")));
    			String str2="";

                             String mm[]=matchstr.split("\\|");
                                for(int h =0;h<mm.length;h++){
                                       String urltoken[]=str2.split("\\s+");
                                if(mm[h] == null ? urltoken[0] == null : mm[h].equals(urltoken[0])){
    			out.print(parts[0]+" "+" ");
    			for(int i=0;i<url.size();i++)

    Please post your question in another part of the forum. This section is for introductions.
    Maybe a moderator will move this to the right place.

    Can you explain what your problem is? What does the program output now?
    Can you explain what the program is supposed to do. It reads two files and writes out a third file.
    How are the contents of the two files used to create the content of the third file?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
