I see what you mean....each time its just going to print the current line, instead of appending it to the end.
I've tried to move the file/Output stuff outside the while
but that doesn't work.
I tried this
public class scrapeSite
public static FileOutputStream Output;
public static PrintStream file;
public static String line;
public static void main( String args )
// create a connection to 'www.yahoo.com' on port 80
Socket s = new Socket( "www.yahoo.com", 80 );
// create the reader and writer objects
br = new BufferedReader( new InputStreamReader( s.getInputStream() ));
bw = new BufferedWriter( new OutputStreamWriter( s.getOutputStream() ));
// request the 'root' page
bw.write( "GET / HTTP/1.0\n\n" );
// while more lines, output to the standard output stream
while( (line = br.readLine()) != null )
Output = new FileOutputStream("myfile.txt");
catch( IOException e ) // catch any errors
System.out.println( "There was an IOException error!" );
file = new PrintStream(Output);
but that doesn't work either. It runs but give NullPointerExceptions and it prints null
I don't know how to break out of the loop, or move the code out of the loop
I'm looking at these sites (1
) but I cant get this thing to run.
Any more hints?
