    Default Reading a File and Ignoring White Space

    How can I read a text file and ignore whitespace?

    I'm using a delimiter to parse commas in the file. When the file content has no spaces, the code runs, but when I put spaces between the words in the file, a NoSuchElement exception is thrown.

    For example, here is a line:

    Jones,Jack,3.5,AppliedMath

    This line is read just fine.

    But if I change it to:

    Jones, Jack, 3.5, Applied Math

    A NoSuchElement exception occurs.

    You can read a line, split based on commas and use trim to remove the white space.

    Why not read the line with the spaces and then replace all spaces with the empty string?
