@parfisal Do you have an idea for a more suitable scenario ? I'm interested in how the output could be handled.

comment Multiple threads and single output source
@parsifal this question originates from another one asked at the volunteer-run Java group on Facebook. It was unclear what the person wanted to do but he apparently wanted a series of phone numbers to be saved to separate files. The thought then came to mind on how something like this would be managed if it were a single file. So in short the motivation for this question is just curiosity.

@Thomas Say we keep track of the line number and also keep a trace of the last line number written to the file. Imagining that the process of transforming a line takes a while, the results could be stored and then fetched then written in order.

comment Multiple threads and single output source
My question was unclear. Sorry about that. Out of curiosity, what was the intent behind using a join with the previous thread ?

@NiklasH same comment as above. If you can think of a scenario where the multithreading would be useful I'm interested.

comment Multiple threads and single output source
@MichaelT, that would be reversing the characters ("meht esrever"). I understand about the sequence making multithreading impractical. Is there a way to reformulate the exercise such that multithreading would be useful ? I was thinking of a divide-and-conquer approach of a problem here. The focus is on outputting to that single File source in a concurrent context.

If they think you're lying then they're looking at things the wrong way.

comment What is meant by “Now you have two problems”?
What he might mean is that regular expressions might not be suited for solving the problem. Like parsing HTML ?
