    Default [SOLVED] Java not fill in all info for text file

    I am making a program that creates an OPML file based on user input, but I am running into troubles and I cannot figure out what is wrong. The program compiles fine, but the error occurs at runtime. Yes, I know that runtime errors are different from syntax errors. The problem is that I have a "for" loop that enters in the outline element with the text, htmlUrl, and xmlUrl attributes that takes data from three different arrays. At runtime, everything seems to work how it should, but the text attribute is always empty.

    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    public class CreateOPML
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
    		String feed[], title, html[], xml[], file;
    		int feeds, num;
    		Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(;
    		System.out.print("Enter the number of feeds to be listed:  ");
    		feeds = keyboard.nextInt();
    		feed = new String[feeds];
    		html = new String[feeds];
    		xml = new String[feeds];
    		for (int count = 0; count <= feeds -1; count++)
    			System.out.print("Enter name for feed:  ");
    			feed[count] = keyboard.nextLine();
    			System.out.print("Enter feed URL:  ");
    			xml[count] = keyboard.nextLine();
    			System.out.print("Enter website for feed:  ");
    			html[count] = keyboard.nextLine();
    		System.out.print("Enter a title for the feed list:  ");
    		title = keyboard.nextLine();
    		file = title + ".opml";
    		FileWriter output = new FileWriter(file, true);
    			output.write("<opml version=\"1.0\">\n");
    			output.write("<title>" + title + "</title>\n");
    		for (int number = 0; number <= feeds -1; number++)
    			output.write("<outline text=\"" + feed[number] + "\" " + "htmlUrl=\"" + html[number] +"\" " + "type=\"rss\" " + "xmlUrl=\"" + xml[number] + "\"" + " />\n");
    I use the nextLine() method because the next() method stops at whitespace. Also, I cannot enter in all the data, unless I use
    Java Code:
    However, if I use it more than once, every input request after that particular input will not show up, thus the file will not be generated. How can I fix this?

    Update: Never mind, I changed out when the name of the file was asked then I changed to method used on xml[] and html[] to next() from nextLine() and it worked.
