Sorry - slight error there. SHould have been:

import java.io.*;

public class FileSizes {

  public static void main(String[] args){
    if(args.length < 1){
     System.out.println("Usage: java FileSizes <file/directory to list>");
     System.exit(-1);
    }
    File f = new File(args[0]);
    if(f.isDirectory()){
      File[] files = f.listFiles();
      for(int i= 0;i < files.length;i++){
        System.out.println(files[i].getName() + " size: " + files[i].length() + " bytes");
      }
    }
    else {
      System.out.println(f.getName() + " size: " + f.length() + " bytes");
    }
  }

}

And while we're about it, import java.io.*; is sloppy!
Better import java.io.File;

Why is it sloppy?

How is the generated code different?

Or are you just being pedantic, in that someone might have defined another Reader class in the current project, and so the compiler might pick the wrong one?

Just wondering...

>>Why is it sloppy?

Because it doesn't show to readers of the source exactly which classes are being imported. I wouldn't take this principle to an extreme though.

Incidentally, does TimYates == nywebsol? If so, i'd be glad if you could close the question. EE has had to employ extra staff due to the large number of open questions.

Nope...soz :-(

WTF?

That was the wrong answer to accept in my opinion...

I guess nywebsol just went for the quick approach, not the correct one :-(

CEHJ,
As a clean up volunteer, I volunteered to clean up this section and in my opinion, your answer was correct and that is what I had recommended but I have no say in who the requester(ie nywebsol) finally decides to give the points to.
