Java HW ;_;

Since my textbook is useless and doesn't help me learn, I've come to my fellow nerds to help me with some Java code.

Problem 1
( Click to show/hide )


Problem 2
( Click to show/hide )


I've gotten pretty much everything else so far, but I've been stuck on these two problems (and two others) for an hour so far. I'm probably overthinking it/tired, but I want to get my work done.

So far I've done pretty well. I have assignments in this eBook, but most of the time it does a bad job at explaining the topic. So it's trial and error until I get it right.

Iterate through each character in the string, testing for if it is a digit.

Code:
for(int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
{
     char c = passCode.charAt(i);
     if(c.isDigit())

Re: Java HW ;_;

Problem 1:

I already tried that. It passes the first test, but the system's second test fails it.
( Click to show/hide )


Problem 2:

Second one says the "==" is an error, reason being "incomparable types: char and java.lang.String"

This eBook is annoying. I feel like it works so differently than Eclipse.

Re: Java HW ;_;

Problem 1:

Your code is different. See bolded.

My test:
Code:
for(int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
{      
     char c = passCode.charAt(i);      
     if(c.isDigit())           
          hasDigit = true; 
}
Your test:
Code:
for(int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
{
     char c = passCode.charAt(i);
     if(Character.isDigit(i))
          hasDigit = true;
}
You are not testing the character c, you are calling the isDigit(int codePoint) function from the Character class and passing it the current loop index as the parameter. This is completely different from what you want to do.


Problem 2:

Replace the " " (quotation marks) with ' ' (apostrophes).

---------- Post added at 12:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:14 AM ----------

Ok so never code late at night...mine was wrong. Yours was correct but you were still passing the array index instead of the character itself.

Problem 1:
( Click to show/hide )
Code:
for(int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
{
     char c = passCode.charAt(i);
     if(Character.isDigit(c))
          hasDigit = true;
}

Alternatively, use the isWhitespace(char ch) function.

( Click to show/hide )
Code:
for(int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
{
     char c = passCode.charAt(i);
     if(Character.isWhitespace(c))
          System.out.println("Whitespace at position " + i + ".");
}

Re: Java HW ;_;

Thanks for the help Seahawk, both are right now.

I was close on the first one, needed the 'c' instead of the 'i'

And second one was an easier fix, just needed to replace the " " with ' '

Quote:
Write a for loop in Java that prints the integer values from 1 through n, counting by inc. For example,
if n is 25 and inc is 5, the loop will print the sequence
1
6
11
16
21
Your code should work for any positive values of n and inc. You may assume that the integer variables
n and inc have already been declared and assigned values. Just write the code for the loop!
Any help with this one? I know what the question is asking me, I just don't know how to get the counter to work/stop.

Re: Java HW ;_;

Google: Java For Loop

First link
The for Statement (The Javaô Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)

Example from that page.

Code:
for(int i=1; i<11; i++){
 System.out.println("Count is: " + i);
}
Edit for your needs.

Answer in spoiler but not much of a point in just copying it. Learning to find and use examples (steps above) is the most important lesson. Step below (answer) is meaningless by itself.

Code:
for(int i=1; i<n; i = i + inc){

Doh! I had the right answer, I just set n and inc to 0 in Java when they were supposed to be fixed values. Setting them to actual values makes it work xD

Thanks though, for some reason reading your post helped me realize my mistake.

Having a buddy look over your stuff is very beneficial in coding.....but only one person at a time, not more. Three or more way coding never works.

Kong is right, the important part is you learn what happened here, this is why I put code in spoilers.


Just curious, do you plan to continue programming classes after this class?

According to my CS friends, no you really don't. As in everything else, it's more who you know not what you know. The stories they tell of people who can't code anything at all but still have coding jobs are insane.

They also say good coding jobs are hard to find. You'll either work for a massive company like Google who will put you under ridiculous deadlines and demands(which is why they offer so much at their HQ, they don't want you to leave the office) or you'll be a contractor where you are employed by one company who will farm you out to other companies on a contact basis.

Re: Java HW ;_;

I figured creative meant in how you land the job. I really don't know jack about it, but I just kind of assumed it would be like anything else, the cream rises to the top...

Re: Java HW ;_;

Conversation naturally flows and evolves. His questions were answered so why not lead the thread into something interesting? Better than just another dead thread.

Well this won't be the last time I'll be using this thread. I'm sure I'll be stuck on a lot of problems in the future.

First thing I did was ask the guy next to me how to send an email. I set a record in my department for most promotions in first year. When I quit I was in charge of 200 people. During one interview for a promotion HR asked what I did to prepare for the interview. I said I bought a new suit and a haircut. She said I got the promotion mostly because of that answer; it showed I didn't need to cram for the technical part of the interview. Reality, the interviewer just didn't know enough to ask any technical questions.

I think that proves that HR must have been very creative when getting their jobs. They weren't qualified to interview anyone. It was dotcom bubble though. No one was qualified for anything they were doing back then.

While I was working for MS I applied at ID. They turned down in the first 2 minutes of the interview because I wore a tie and short sleeve shirt. They said MS boys were too stuffy and ID was a tshirt and jean company. MS was super casual too, but still you dress up for an interview. ~1999.

That's friggin awesome, reminds me of the time my entire department was getting canned. They asked all of us to go down to a room for an emergency meeting. I had suspected that something was up so I didn't go. When the IT guy came around to log everyone out of their computers for the last time,(to prevent mass deletion in a fit of rage) he saw me still sitting there, I told him I was told not too attend the meeting. I was moved to a new department, and promptly got a promotion, -witch I can't explain. Not quite as epic as your story Kong, but in the same vein so I figured I'd share.
