    Default Adding print streams together

    Hello, im working on a program, however i have a need to have 2 print streams and i wish to add the contents of one to another
    Java Code:
    	private static PrintStream newwriter;
    	private static PrintStream writer2;
    
    newwriter =   new PrintStream("test.txt");
    writer2 =   new PrintStream(); // dont want a new file output, just need the stream
    //what i want to do
    writer2.append("test sentence");
    newwriter.print(writer2);
    The problem is i cant declare writer 2 without giving it a file url the same as newwriter, so basically i end up with 2 files when i only really want one, but it is required of me to maintain both streams. I have also tried using the writer class and appending that to writer but it just outputs java.io.FileWriter@6e1408. Any help would be great

    Why do you want two separate streams going to the same file?
    You could try using a ByteOutputStream as the target for both PrintStreams and then write the ByteOutputStream to a file.

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
