Write a Java program that recursively reads ten names from a file, and then outputs the total number of characters in the names, the list of names, and the list of names in reverse order. All looping must be performed recursively.

I am 100% lost. I would like advice on where would be the first place to start. Thinking about the program, I wanted to build a main that would call a scanner that would read the file first. When reading the file, it would count the characters in the text (quick question, would a scanner count the spaces between the characters?).
Next I was thinking of just a simple print function that would display the entire names.txt file.
Finally, the part that I'm 110% lost...how the heck would I go about listing the names in reverse order? What would I use? How does recursion fit in all this? O.o I'm totally blown at that part.
