    Ditto MP3; in Chrome, the new tab opens, but the page never loads and Chrome just sits there spinning away.

  • Reading a file line by line in Java

    Someone should introduce the java.util.Scanner class to him. Strawman arguments are not appreciated.

    I assume you are referring to my example of reading a file line by line.

    Well, using java.util.Scanner is another way, admittedly cleaner in terms of readability, of doing it. However, my argument is still valid. In fact, I would argue that looking for java.util.Scanner is not obvious since the affordance is still not easily found.

    The all point is that reading line by line is a very common operation, so having some functionality that can be easily found makes the API easier to use.
