Writing elements of an arraylist to a text file

PoormanPoorman Posts: 13Member
In the following code, I am iterating through an array list and writing each element out to a file. What should I add to the code to write each element of the array list to a new line in the file.
ex: Test1
Test2
Test3



String word = null;
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("password.txt", true);
PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter(fos);
for (int i = 0; i < pswdAL.size(); i++)
{
word = (String)pswdAL.get(i);
pw.write(word);
}
pw.close();

    im not too familiar with FileOutputStream, i usually use DataOutputStream, but you could try
    pw.write(word + "
    ");
    again, not sure if the write() method will do that, but if you havent tried it yet, that'd be my guess.
