    Default Txt file to array


    Lets say I have a text file called "Letter.txt" with a string of 35 numbers stored in it with no spaces.
    i.e. 12345678906435824239

    How would I take this txt file and turn it into an 1d array (not arraylist) with 35 elements(indexes)?

    Any sample code would help me greatly. I have been stuck on this for two days. Thanks.

    Really? 2 Days . . .

    You can do many things with a String object using the various methods the class provides. You should read through the methods on the String API page to see if any of them sound like something you could use to accomplish this task.

    When you have some code you'ld like help with (if you need it) come back and let us know what help you need.

    Here this sample code should get you where you need to be...

    public class TextToFileArray {
          public static void main(String[] args){

    Now that you're started... Show us what you've done, show us what you've tried to do, and we'll point out your errors and assist you in writing it.
