    Default [Solved] Basic Java File I/O with Scanner Class Problem

    If the equation is this:

      String name;
      Scanner inputFile = new Scanner(new FileReader("dogNames.txt"));   
      PrintWriter outputFile = new PrintWriter("doggoneData.txt");

    insert code here


    I think it is along the lines of including
    name = "Tippy";
    but I am unsure of how to write the correct answer. Can someone help me?

    Hello miss confused.

    I have just seen your edited comment.. Is this thread solved?

    If not, can you please give some more information? Are you looking to read the file dogNames.txt and write out to doggoneData.txt?

    What does the content of dogNames.txt look like?
