    Default Writing a long string to a text file


    im writing a huge string into a text file in my java program...the full text is getting printed in the system.out.println() statement.... but full text is not getting printed in the text file...only the last line is getting printed...can sumbdy tell me why is this and can you give me a solution? this is my code snippet..

    List<ArrayList<? extends HasWord>> sentences = tagger.tokenizeText(new BufferedReader(new FileReader("D:/out.txt")));
    for (ArrayList<? extends HasWord> sentence : sentences) {
    ArrayList<TaggedWord> tSentence = tagger.tagSentence(sentence);
    String outnew = Sentence.listToString(tSentence, false);


    // Create file
    FileWriter fstream = new FileWriter("D:/outnew.txt");
    BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(fstream);
    //Close the output stream
    }catch (Exception e){//Catch exception if any
    System.err.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());

    You're recreating the file every time you go to write to the file. Create the file before the for loop, and close the streams/writers after it ends. You should probably only flush the writer after the loop as well.

    In pseudocode:

    Java Code:
    set up strings to write;
    create FileWriter and BufferedWriter;
    for(sentence in senctences){
         create string to be written;
              write string to file;
              print error message;
    close writers;
    Also, when posting code, please place code tags ([code] and [/code]) around the code. The code then retains its formatting, as with the pseudocode above, making it easier to read.
    If the above doesn't make sense to you, ignore it, but remember it - might be useful!
    And if you just randomly taught yourself to program, well... you're just like me!
