    Default [SOLVED] Writing to a file

    I am trying to write to a file and I don't really know what I'm doing wrong here. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

    Java Code:
    BufferedWriter writer = new BufferedWriter (new FileWriter(foo));
    for (int count = 0; count <= (listArray.length - 1); count++)
    	    {
    	    	writer.write(listArray[count]);
    	    	writer.write("\n");
    	    }
    It is supposed to write each field of the array to the File foo, one at a time. Each needs to be on its own line (perhaps BufferedWriter.write() moves the cursor to the next line, but I doubt it, hence the "\n"). Can anyone explain why this isn't working?

    It is really starting to annoy me because I'm pretty sure I'm doing something stupid here and I don't know what it is.

    Nevermind I figured it out.

    It was something stupid after all. Above that code mentioned in the previous post I was reading a file into that array using a BufferedReader wrapped around a FileReader and I had forgotten to close that Reader.

    Thanks anyway everyone :) will mark as solved

    Difficult? This is Mission Impossible, not Mission Difficult. Difficult should be easy.
