Hi,

I want to extract tab delimited data from a text file which consists of integers.
I wrote the code for it but not able to get each integer and next line in the text file.

I pasted my code as well as text file..

import java.io.*;
 

public class HeapSort {
 

	public void readData(String filename)  throws Exception {

  		BufferedReader bin = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(filename));

  		

  			String s;

  		

  			s = bin.readLine();

  			while((s) != null)

  			{

  				String[] input = s.split("\t");

    		

    		

  				if (input == null) 

  				{

  					System.err.println( "No data found in the data file: " + filename + "\n");

  				}
 

    		

  				for(int i=0;i<input.length;i++)

  				{

  					System.out.println(input[i]);

  				}

    		

  				s = bin.readLine();

  			} // end of while loop
 

  			

    		bin.close();
 

    		
 
 

	}	// End of function readData

	

	

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception

	{

		HeapSort h = new HeapSort();

		h.readData("C:\\Users\\nnnn\\workspace\\HeapSort\\data2.txt");

		

	}

	

}

Try instead the following (your file is space-delimited - but the code i posted will work for any whitespace)
String[] input = s.split("\\s+");

You can tell what the command line one is by doing the following, and what Eclipse's is by looking at the .classpath file
    out.println("public class HelloWorld {");

    out.println("  public static void main(String args[]) {");

    out.println("    System.out.println(\"This is in another java file and here is the classpath\");");

    out.println("    System.out.println(System.getProperty(\"java.class.path\"));");

    out.println("  }");

    out.println("}");

    out.close();
