Suggestions on approach for retrieving data from text file
I have dozens of .txt files I need to do various statistical analysis on. All files are formatted the same way with each data field in the same position in all files. I plan to create an ArrayList of object files with each having the same attributes and perform the analysis once they’ve been read. My question is what is the best way of reading the data of such a file? Random access or sequentially? I’ve ran into problems both ways. Or some other method?
This is a personal project and not any type of school assignment.
Below is an example of part of a file. I would begin reading at 89, then 25.8 and so on.
Thanks in advance for any help.
