The Programmatic Generation of a File
MetadataShow full item record
We are surrounded by files. Every day, many of us access, edit, and save information to files of all formats. Webpages are generated by reading through files and displaying the information within them according to the specifications of the coder. Any time a change must be made to a file, a program must add or delete information from a file without affecting the other information stored in it. How files are generated, accessed, and edited is an important topic in computer science. This project examines the inner workings of file readers and writers, and uses Java to implement a file reader/writer in order to expedite the installation of a program. The author discusses the implementation and challenges encountered implementing the program.
