hi
Im reading data from a file and putting into an array ,I know this works fine because I can loop thru the array and print the contents to the console.However because Im adding the file contents within a while loop ,I dont seem to be able to use the array outside of the loop.So when I actually try to use it ,there is only one item in it instead of 307.
Code:
 File file = new File("c:\\test_list.txt");
        
        try {
            // read in the raw file
            BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(file));
            
            
          String s;
        StringTokenizer t;
          
  
            while((s=reader.readLine())!=null) {
            items = s.split(" ");  

           for (int j = 0; j < items.length; j++) {
           if(items[j]==null){
            items[j]="\n";}
               
        	System.out.print(items[j]+"\n");
//prints all values
     }
      
         
         
            reader.close();
     
  
  } catch (Exception e){

}
Im obviously doing something fundamentally wrong..any ideas?
Thanks
