    Need a bit more information. What is the format of your Java app? Is your app being run from the command-line and where the numbers and text are being printed to the console, or do you have a graphical app where they are they in UI objects like tables and text fields?

    it's a simple quess game...
    the results (the number you enter-if you quess is too low, or too hight, the choice to play again etc.) are printed in the console... no grafics at all... just text...

    Even simpler than adding to your code - run in command line with '>' i.e.:

    java -cp . MyClass > result

    Guess that would work too. But I figured he was asking how to code it since it is a programming forum category.

    Compile 'em all

    Probably in your program you are using System.out.println() to write text to
    the console. Instead use FileWriter to write to a file. As a MacRumors fellow
    pointed out, take a look at Java I/O docs on SUN's website.
