    public String findInLine(String patt);
  • findInLine() method is available in java.util package.
  • findInLine(Pattern patt) method is used to get the string that meets the given pattern (Pattern).

  • These methods may throw an exception at the time of returning pattern.
    IllegalStateException: This exception may throw when this Scanner is not opened.
  • These are non-static methods, it is accessible with class object & if we try to access these methods with the class name then we will get an error.

Parameter(s):

    • Pattern patt – represents the pattern to find for.
  • In the second case, findInLine(String patt),

import java.util.regex.*;

public class FindInLine {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  String str = "Java Programming! 3 * 8= 24";

  Scanner sc = new Scanner(str);

  // By using findInLine(Pattern) method
  // is to find the next pattern from the given
  // parameter ".Program"
  String pattern = sc.findInLine(Pattern.compile(".Program"));
  System.out.println("sc.findInLine(Pattern.compile(.Program)): " + pattern);

  // By using findInLine(string) method
  // is to find the next pattern from the given
  // parameter of string "Java"

  pattern = sc.findInLine("ava");
  System.out.println("sc.findInLine(ava): " + pattern);
