import*; class xyz { public static void main(String[] args){

    byte b[]=new byte[5000];
    System.out.println("enter the path name");
    }catch(Exception e)
     String s2=new String(b);

   File f1=new File(s2);
  String [] a=f1.list();
  for(int i=0;i<a.length;i++)

} in the above question if i enter path name as d:/java it is giving NullPointerException.

but if I directly write code like- File f1=new File("d:/java"); instead of File f1=new File(s2);and then call list() method then it is working fine although s2 also prints as "d:/java" ?? help
