Is there a way to use FileOutputStream in a way that if a file (String filename) does not exist, then it will create it?
FileOutputStream oFile = new FileOutputStream("score.txt", false);
It will throw a
FileNotFoundException if the file doesn’t exist and cannot be created (doc), but it will create it if it can. To be sure you probably should first test that the file exists before you create the
FileOutputStream (and create with
createNewFile() if it doesn’t):
File yourFile = new File("score.txt"); yourFile.createNewFile(); // if file already exists will do nothing FileOutputStream oFile = new FileOutputStream(yourFile, false);
