Java file processing

The file named babynames80s.txt contains the data for names in the 80s, pasted directly from the Social Security Administration web site. The numbers in the files have comma separators:
1 Michael 663,087 3.4512 Jessica 469,271 2.5448
2 Christopher 555,660 2.8920 Jennifer 440,697 2.3899
3 Matthew 458,596 2.3869 Amanda 369,589 2.0042
4 Joshua 396,328 2.0628 Ashley 352,033 1.9090
5 David 383,258 1.9947 Sarah 272,376 1.4771
...

MODIFY the BabyNames.java program to handle them. Also modify the program so that it prompts the user for a file name.

Here is a sample program run:

BELOW is the BabyNames.java code:
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class BabyNames
{
public static final double LIMIT = 50;

public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException
{
Scanner in = new Scanner(new File("babynames.txt"));

RecordReader boys = new RecordReader(LIMIT);
RecordReader girls = new RecordReader(LIMIT);

while (boys.hasMore() || girls.hasMore())
{
int rank = in.nextInt();
System.out.print(rank + " ");
boys.process(in);
girls.process(in);
System.out.println();
}

in.close();
}
}

BELOW is the BabyNames.java
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class BabyNames
{
public static final double LIMIT = 50;

public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException
{
Scanner in = new Scanner(new File("babynames.txt"));

RecordReader boys = new RecordReader(LIMIT);
RecordReader girls = new RecordReader(LIMIT);

while (boys.hasMore() || girls.hasMore())
{
int rank = in.nextInt();
System.out.print(rank + " ");
boys.process(in);
girls.process(in);
System.out.println();
}

in.close();
}
}

BELOW IS THE RecordReader.java
import java.util.Scanner;

/**
This class processes baby name records.
*/
public class RecordReader
{
private double total;
private double limit;

/**
Constructs a RecordReader with a zero total.
*/
public RecordReader(double aLimit)
{
total = 0;
limit = aLimit;
}

/**
Reads an input record and prints the name if the current total is less
than the limit.
@param in the input stream
*/
public void process(Scanner in)
{
String name = in.next();
int count = in.nextInt();
double percent = in.nextDouble();

if (total < limit) { System.out.print(name + " "); }
total = total + percent;
}

/**
Checks whether there are more inputs to process
@return true if the limit has not yet been reached
*/
public boolean hasMore()
{
return total < limit;
}
}

YOUR main class should be called BabyNames.

PLEASE PROVIDE the following class in your solution:
RecordReader.
