Need Java Program

If there's anyone out there familiar with Java, I am in serious need of some help. I need a program that does a few simple tasks. It must ask the user for an input file. The input file I am using is a basic txt file that has 100 integers. These integers range from -9 to 9 including 0. Then it must calculate and display the mode (the integer that occurs the most.) If possible, I'd like it to have at least one method that it calls upon somewhere in the program. And that's it. Hopefully someone can help. Attached is the txt file I am using. We were told, if done correctly, this code can be written in 15-20 lines, so I can't imagine this being complicated.  Lab0-input.txt

If you're not planning on doing the work, get out of the class.  As a professional developer, I don't want you anywhere near my code or anyone else's if you can't/won't learn how to do it yourself.

Agreed with for_yan and gordon_vt02. But you can use the given hint and reference.


1. Read your file and store the data in an Array (Refer http://www.roseindia.net/java/beginners/java-read-file-line-by-line.shtml)
2. Calculate Mode based on the values stored in an Array (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4191687/how-to-calculate-mean-median-mode-and-range-from-a-set-of-numbers)

It's an elective course it's totally optional. As a professional smart ass, I pay close attention to detail and no where in my post does it say anything about having someone else write the code...it simply asks for help. Which has been given to me by amit. Thank you. Issue has been resolved. Case closed.
