I'm afraid I don't understand what's going on here. The following
code snippet compiles, runs, and produces the single line file
output = BufferedWriter(FileWriter(File('filetst.out')))
line='Line of text'
Removing the dashes, however, produces the following error:
[N:\nrx\jnrw\7_fileio]nrc -run filetst
NetRexx portable processor, version 1.113
Copyright (c) IBM Corporation, 1997. All rights reserved.
Compilation of 'filetst.nrx' successful
Running filetst ...
java.lang.NumberFormatException: Line 2
at netrexx.lang.Rexx.toint(Compiled Code)
at filetst.main(Compiled Code)
According to my JiaN, BufferedWriter doesn't have a 'write(String s)'
method, but its immediate superclass Writer, which is abstract, has a
public void write(String str) throws IOException
instance method. Since BufferedWriter doesn't override that method,
I assumed that I would be able to use it, but apparently not. Laura
Lemay, in TYJava1.1in24Days seems to think I should, too.
What don't we understand, here?
