Homework Help: A blue j string manipulation problem(its simple but still i can't figure it out)

  1. Dec 5, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Well this actually a part of a different problem and there i want to make use of subscript function but its giving a funny problem .
    it's like this:
    public class test
    { void main(String m)
    { int a =m.length(),b=0;

    3. The attempt at a solution
    When i try to compile this it gives me an error " cannot find symbol - method subscript(int,int)"
    So it tried to declare a and b in separate lines and the are obviously int type.
    Please can you point out my mistake(It may be very silly ,i know)
    Thank you

    There is no "subscript" method on the String class - are you thinking of the substring method? See http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/java/lang/String.html
