I want to know how to create text files with variable names.

For instance, let's say I want to create a text file called "File0".  Later I want to create a text file called "File1", and so on.

How would I create a file that has a variable in it's name that I can just keep incrementing?

I hope you guys understand what Im asking :)

Thanks objects.

How would I do the same thing for variable names?  Let's say I wanted to make a bunch of integers like

int integer0 = someRandomNumber;
int integer1 = someRandomNumber;
int integer2 = someRandomNumber;
...

you can't sorry.
Why not use an array instead:
int[] integer = new int[3];
integer[0] = someRandomNumber;
integer[1] = someRandomNumber;
integer[2] = someRandomNumber;
