I'm suppose to create a problem that displays the contents of a file (that the user inputs), and then displays each line with a number in front and a colon after it. So, line 1 and 2 would print out:
1 lineFromFile :
2 lineFromFile :
But, it keeps printing out 1 in front of each line, so I think I didn't write the count part correctly. Can someone help? Here's what I've got.
import java.util.Scanner; //Needed for Scanner class
import java.io.*; //Needed for file and IOException
public class orderOfFileLines
public static void main (String[ ] args) throws IOException
int number; //Loop control variable
//Create a Scanner object for keyboard input.
Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
//Get the file name.
System.out.print("Enter the name of a file.");
String filename = keyboard.nextLine();
//Open the file.
File file = new File(filename);
Scanner inputFile = new Scanner(file);
//Read the lines from the file until no more are left.
//Read the next line.
String line = inputFile.nextLine();
for (number = 1; number <=1; number++)
//Display the lines with number and ":".
System.out.println(number + line + ":");
//Close the file.
}//end main method
