you can avoid readline if it doesn't work like you wish.
store all chars in a StringTokenizer and let the default delimiters tab,/r,/n

A StringTokenizer breaks on \r (carriage return) or \n (newline) (or a tab)  but so does the readln() method of BufferedReader. BufferedReader also looks for a \r\n at the end (return followed immediately by a newline) what you probably want to do is extend BufferedReader then override the readln() and readln(boolean b) methods, then force it to look only for a 0D0A instead of looking for single instances of 0A or 0D.

If you set the delimiter as "\r\n"
or "\n\r" (depending of how is oerdered in your case) the StringTokenizer will
break from line to line.
