    Default .txt file to multidimensional array

    I have a .txt file that contains either i's or j's. There are 7000 characters in total which are all either i or j. I need to place these into an array where each row is 70 characters long and there are a 100 rows in total. I have a custom package based on the buffered reader which can read in the values. I am pretty sure I need to use a loop to loop through all the character values but I am lost as to what loop to use and how to use it in the correct way. Any help would be greatly appreciated :) .

    Your loop should likely be a while loop that continues until the reader's readLine() method returns null. There are many examples of this to be found here and in other forums.

    Okay but the only problem I have is that there is no readLine() method it can only read one character at a time?

    Well, wrap your reader in a BufferedReader then.
    Remember, we cannot see your code from here.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
