    I'm trying to make a plugin in which during onEnable, I want to iterate through a file. However, I've used FileConfiguration with this.getConfig() but I can't find a get file method anywhere. How would I do that and make an iterator instance of it?

    You want to iterate through all the keys? Use getConfig().getKeys(boolean);
    The boolean is whether or not the set is recursive (does it contain keys under keys)

    Thank you RealDope! I did not know about .getKeys() nor I have ever used it.

    If you want to, lets say get all players from config, and their nick name and save to a HashMap you would do this:
    HashMap<String, String> nicks = new HashMap<>();
    for(String key : getConfig().getKeys(false)){
      nicks.put(key, getConfig().getString(key));
    I think this should work :)
