    Question Incompatible type for method. Can't convert java.lang.String to char.

    Hi


    I have an input file , the java program reads every input record and should look for { and } . If it finds { it should replace it with ( and if it finds } it should replace it with )

    So i have added this line to do it :-
    /* read first line from input file */
    input = br.readLine();
    /* replace each } to a left round bracket */
    input = input.replace("}",")");
    /* replace each { to a right round bracket */
    /*input = input.replace("{","(");*/

    and i get this error :-
    Incompatible type for method. Can't convert java.lang.String to char.
    input = input.replace("}",")");


    Can anyone pls help me ..

    Default

    What does the API doc say about the parameters of the replace method?
