Hi,

I am going through below example

http://bethecoder.com/applications/tutorials/tools-and-libs/commons-io/basic/line-iterator.html


Code looks like below

import org.apache.commons.io.LineIterator;

public class LineIteratorTest {

  /**
   * @param args
   * @throws IOException
   */
  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    File file = new File("C:/Test/rule_engine_names.txt");
    LineIterator lineIt = FileUtils.lineIterator(file, "UTF-8");
   
    while (lineIt.hasNext()) {
      System.out.println(lineIt.next());
//Here i need to somehow prepare inputFileMsg as String object
    }
   
    LineIterator.closeQuietly(lineIt);
  }
}  
 
   
 

//LAter I need to call
parseMsgFile(inputFileMsg);

other method looks like this


      public Object parseMsgFile(String inputFileMsg) throws Exception {

...
}

I suspect that class is pretty old (it would be redundant if invented after Scanner)

If you want to turn a file into a String:
