Exercise 8.38:

Text censorer


Objetive:

Create a program to "censor" text files. It must read a text file, and dump its results to a new text file, replacing certain words with "[CENSORED]". The words to censor will be in stored a second data file, a text file which will contain a word in each line.


Source Code:


using System;
using System.IO;
class TextCensorer
{
    static string[] CreateDictionary(string fileName)
    {
        string[] result;
