         BufferedReader br1=new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader(System.in));
         FileReader fr=new FileReader(f);
       //  FileWriter frt=new FileWriter(f);
        // BufferedReader brz=new BufferedReader(fr);

          String text;

         System.out.println("Enter value");
         text= br1.readLine();
                    
      
       
          //   br.newLine();
               // br.append(text);
                 br.newLine();
           br.write(text);
           br.flush();
       //  frt.write(text);
       
         br.close();

Edited 6 Years Ago by __avd: Added [code] tags. For easy readability, always wrap programming code within posts in [code] (code blocks).

Start a new thread next time. Always use code tags: Press the code button when you make a new post put code inside.

And mots importantly:
ALWAYS look at the API of the classes you are using. Maybe there is an option that allows you do what you want.

For example why don't you look some of the many constructors of the FileWriter class you are using. One of them might be useful.
