I got this assignment
This is what i am suppose to do
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. The program must store the following data about each student in this Talent Show:
* The student's name (store as a String)
* The student's average time score [only for the events they competed in] (store as a Double)

Note: Some of the data comes directly from the text file, and some of the data must be calculated from the data that is read from the file.

6. The program must search through all of the student's scores to find the student who has the minumum average time of all students.
7. You must calculate how many events each student played. Zero values are not counted.
8. You must then generate a report on the screen that prints out
* the total number of students in the competition,
* the winning student's ...
o name
o times
o average time (rounded to one decimal places)

My code so far


import java.io.*;

public class test
{
public static void main (String [] args)
{

FileInputStream File1;
DataInputStream In;
String fileInput = "";

try
{
File1 = new FileInputStream ("data.txt");


In = new DataInputStream (File1);


while (In.available () > 0)
{
fileInput = In.readLine ();
System.out.println (fileInput);
}

In.close ();
}

catch (FileNotFoundException e)
{
System.out.println ("Error - this file does not exist");
}

catch (IOException e)
{
System.out.println ("error=" + e.toString ());
}

}
}

My question, how do i save the data in to an array, and how do i seperatly save names in to different array, and their scores in to different arrays

btw he said you can't use scanner class

Thanks
