//TextFile.java
//manipulating text files
import java.io.*;
public class TextFile {
	String fileName;
	TextFile(String fn)
	{
		fileName = fn;
	}
	public void createFile()
	{
	}
	public void writeToFile()
	{
		try{
			PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter( new FileWriter( fileName ) );
			for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
				out.println("hello");
			out.close();
		}
		catch(IOException ioe){
			ioe.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
	public void readFile()
	{
		System.out.println("Content of file: " + fileName);
		try{
			BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader( fileName ));
			String line = "";
			while((line = in.readLine()) != null)
				System.out.println(line);
		}
		catch(IOException ioe){
			ioe.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
	public static void main ( String[] args )
	{
		TextFile txtFile = new TextFile("text.txt");
		txtFile.writeToFile();
		txtFile.readFile();
	}
}
