    Default I can not remove space or tab from text file

    Hi All,
    please advise me why the following code not remove the spaces or tab from the text file.

    Java Code:
            FileReader fr = new FileReader("D:\\Test\\a.txt");
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(fr);
    Pattern p;
      Matcher m;
    String line;
     String afterReplace = "";
      String inputText = "";
    while((line = br.readLine()) != null)
       inputText = line;
      p = Pattern.compile("\\s+|\t");
      m = p.matcher(inputText);
      afterReplace = afterReplace + m.replaceAll(" ") + "\r\n";
          catch (Exception e){
      System.err.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());
    my regards

    this is the file
