Java Question

Java read file and store text in an array

I know how to read a file with

Java
using
Scanner
and File IOException, but the only thing I don't know is how to store the text in the files as an array.

Here is a
snippet
of my code:

public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException{
// TODO code application logic here

// // read KeyWestTemp.txt

// create token1
String token1 = "";

// for-each loop for calculating heat index of May - October


// create Scanner inFile1
Scanner inFile1 = new Scanner(new File("KeyWestTemp.txt"));

// while loop
while(inFile1.hasNext()){

// how can I create array from text read?

// find next line
token1 = inFile1.nextLine();


Here is what my
KeyWestTemp.txt
file contains:

70.3, 70.8, 73.8, 77.0, 80.7, 83.4, 84.5, 84.4, 83.4, 80.2, 76.3, 72.0

Answer

Stored as strings:

public class ReadTemps {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO code application logic here

    // // read KeyWestTemp.txt

    // create token1
    String token1 = "";

    // for-each loop for calculating heat index of May - October

    // create Scanner inFile1
    Scanner inFile1 = new Scanner(new File("KeyWestTemp.txt")).useDelimiter(",\\s*");

    // Original answer used LinkedList, but probably preferable to use ArrayList in most cases
    // List<String> temps = new LinkedList<String>();
    List<String> temps = new ArrayList<String>();

    // while loop
    while (inFile1.hasNext()) {
      // find next line
      token1 = inFile1.next();
      temps.add(token1);
    }
    inFile1.close();

    String[] tempsArray = temps.toArray(new String[0]);

    for (String s : tempsArray) {
      System.out.println(s);
    }
  }
}

For floats:

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.LinkedList;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class ReadTemps {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO code application logic here

    // // read KeyWestTemp.txt

    // create token1

    // for-each loop for calculating heat index of May - October

    // create Scanner inFile1
    Scanner inFile1 = new Scanner(new File("KeyWestTemp.txt")).useDelimiter(",\\s*");


    // Original answer used LinkedList, but probably preferable to use ArrayList in most cases
    // List<Float> temps = new LinkedList<Float>();
    List<Float> temps = new ArrayList<Float>();

    // while loop
    while (inFile1.hasNext()) {
      // find next line
      float token1 = inFile1.nextFloat();
      temps.add(token1);
    }
    inFile1.close();

    Float[] tempsArray = temps.toArray(new Float[0]);

    for (Float s : tempsArray) {
      System.out.println(s);
    }
  }
}
