Can you help me?

I can read it line by line but how to continue now?

Code blocks are created by indenting at least 4 spaces
... and can span multiple lines

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;

public class read {

  public static void main(String[] args) {


                    //csv file containing data
        String strFile = "BaseballNames1.csv";

                    //create BufferedReader to read csv file
        BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader( new FileReader(strFile));
        String strLine = "";
        StringTokenizer st = null;
        int lineNumber = 0;
        int tokenNumber = 0;

                    //read comma separated file line by line
        while( (strLine = br.readLine()) != null)

                            //break comma separated line using ","
           st = new StringTokenizer(strLine, ",");

                                    //display csv values

              String name = dis.readUTF();
              String lastName = dis.readUTF();
              int bDay = dis.readInt();
              int bMonth = dis.readInt();
              int bYear = dis.readInt();
              int weight = dis.readInt();
              double height = dis.readDouble();         */          

                 System.out.println("tokel line:"+st.nextToken());  


                            //reset token number
           tokenNumber = 0;


        catch(Exception e)
           System.out.println("Exception while reading csv file: " + e);

You might have to edit the CSV file.

Or, if you know all the lengths are the same, you can parse the second value and seperate by the values from string index 1-3, 3-6, ect...
