    Default Reading a txt file and then storing it in a 2d array

    This has got me completely stumped.

    Part of a project I'm doing requires me to write a method that loads in a txt file that contains "-"s and "0"s that form a grid image.

    An example of this is...

    0---0---0-0--
    --0-0-0-00---
    -0-0--0---00-
    0--00---0---0
    ------00---00
    0--00-------0
    -0---00-0----

    Next i need to store this information into an ArrayList object two dimensional.
    And it should be a 2d array of chars.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    It's always best to first try to solve this on your own, and then failing that, post your best attempt here. Otherwise you'll be cheating yourself out of a valuable educational opportunity. Much luck!

    Default I'm not trying to cheat

    I'm just asking for assistance with one specific method in my big program that I have to do that has me completely stumped.

    I've been trying for quite some time to solve this. All i know is that I have to use the BufferedReader and read in the txt file and then somehow put the data into a 2d array.

    I'm clueless on how to do that -.- I would put some code if i knew.

    maybe this code is used...???

    public void load(String sourceName) {

    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(sourceName));
    Followed by code to put data into a 2d array? idk -.- haha
