    Default Java Labrynth Game

    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    public class MapToString{
    	public char[][] mArray;
    	public char WALL = (char)35;
    	public char PLAYER = (char)80;
    	public MapToString(String file){
    		File map = new File(file);
    			String line;
    			ArrayList<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
    			Scanner scan = new Scanner(map);
    			for(int i = 0;scan.hasNextLine();i++){
    				line = scan.nextLine();
    			mArray = new char[list.size()][];
    			for(int i=0; i<mArray.length; i++){
    				mArray[i] = ((String) list.get(i)).toCharArray();
    		catch(Exception e){
    			System.out.println("invalid file");
    	public static void main(String[] args){
    		new MapToString(get_map());
    	public static String get_map(){
    		System.out.println("Please enter name of map you wish to load: ");
    		BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
    		String input = null;
    			input = br.readLine();
    			//reads input
    		}catch (Exception e){
    			System.out.println("Error trying to read");
    			//in case of error
    		return input;
    	public char[][] getmArray(){
    		return mArray;
    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    public class GameLogic{
        String file = "map2.txt";
        MapToString m = new MapToString(file);
        private void startPosition(){
        	int randomHeight = getRandomHeight();
        	int randomWidth = getRandomWidth();
        	if(m.mArray[randomHeight][randomWidth] != m.WALL){
        		int x = randomWidth;
        		int y = randomHeight;
        private char setPlayer(int i, int j){
        	return m.mArray[i][j];
        private int getRandomHeight(){
        	Random gen = new Random();
        	int i = gen.nextInt(m.mArray.length);
        	return i;
        private int getRandomWidth(){
        	Random gen = new Random();
        	int i = gen.nextInt(m.mArray[0].length);
        	return i;
        public static void main(String[] args){
        	new GameLogic();
    this above is 2 codes I have written, MapToString takes a text file, and converts it into a 2d array.

    with GameLogic, I want to place a character "P" in a random position on the map, which isn't a #. I have written the class to get the random position, but am not sure how i can put P onto the board, without replacing the existing character.

    Please help,

    I have attached the txt file
