Hi there,

I am trying to parse a .txt file and don't know where to start. I am trying to get the file information from within the text file and output it to a SWT table. The file I'm trying to parse looks like the following with useless information before and after the file information. All I really need to do is somehow get each line and take its individual pieces of data and store them in an array or something so I can put them into my table.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Kind Regards,

Shinny :)

Looks fairly straight forward to me. Which part are you stuck on? Have you searched the web for tutorials regarding file handling in java and/or parsing lines into tokens?

As I said above I don't know where to start, I've never done parsing before.
