    Default Need Help with storing text to a file!

    1 Prompt the user for the name of the file to read.
    2 Reads file
    3 Write the non-comma characters to output.txt, including all spaces.
    4 When done reading the input file, write the total number of comma’s removed to the console window.

    So far I believe that I have accomplished the first two objectives with the code I have, now I just need help figuring 3 & 4.

    Scanner k = new Scanner (System.in);
    System.out.println("Enter input file name");
    String inputFile = k.nextLine();

    System.out.println("Enter output file name");
    String outputFile = k.nextLine();

    File input = new File(inputFile);
    Scanner s = new Scanner (input);

    FileWriter output = new FileWriter(outputFile, true);
    PrintWriter outputFile = new PrintWriter (output );

    String line = s.nextLine();
