Read and Write a Log File

This is a Java class that can be used to write a log file and also read its contents into the console.

                                public class Log {
	//write to log file
	public void writeLog(String transaction, String fileName) throws IOException{
		//create new log file identified by input file name, set file writer "true" to append.
		BufferedWriter writer = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(fileName +"_log.txt", true));
		//write each entered transaction to file, break line, and close each time.
	public void readLog(String fileName) throws IOException{
		//define source path to look for correct file with matching fileName
		Path source = Paths.get(fileName +"_log.txt");
		//define charset for reader
		Charset charset = Charset.forName("US-ASCII");
		// instantiate reader, pass in source path and charset
		BufferedReader reader = Files.newBufferedReader(source,charset);
		String line = null;
		//ID message for console output
		System.out.println("Viewing Log for: " + fileName);
		// output contents of file until end
		while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
