You can open a text file and read each line.
  • The BufferedReader represents a text file.
  • You can create BufferedReader from an

FileReader.

  • The while condition (s=fh.readLine())!=null does two

things, it assigns the string s and it checks for null.

The text file [haggis.txt] includes some lines of text.

Using the try structure

You can use the try feature in Java 7. This ensures that the file will be closed and disposed of even if the read fails.

  • If the file is missing then the exception will be raised and caught.
