HI,

I would like to pass a string to a java program and then save this to the file system, in a specific location.

It should overwrite any file that is existing but wait if the file is being read.

Can i use the file class?

Thanks.

I am using the file class to read the file class to read the file but don't think i can do this for my output.

use the following:

File theFile = new File("fikle/lcoation");
if (theFile.exists())
theFile.delete();
theFile.createNewFile();

This will create a new file, overwriting any file that existsed before.

To write to the file, use the following:

FileOutpStream fo = new FIleOutputStream(theFile);
DataOutputStream do = new DataOutputStrean(fo);

do.writeChars(theStringToWrite);

do.close();
fo.close();

See here for read text from a file:
http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.io/ReadLinesFromFile.html
This to write:
http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.io/WriteToFile.html?l=rel
This to append:
http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.io/AppendToFile.html?l=rel
and so on.

The String could be passed to your program from the args[] of the main method.

Bye, Giant.
