I m Trying to read a file dictionnaire and try to match each line with a string to see if it the string exist on the file, if yes log the string to another file.
below is what I get so far...
public class test {
     public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
          String k = "aronas";
           FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream("dictionaryTest.txt");
           DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
           BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
           String strLine;
           while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null)   
                System.out.println (strLine);
               if(strLine == k)
                    System.out.println("I'm here");
