The program should output every number of a user-input base, containing a certain quantity of digits.

------------------------------------------

import java.io.*;

public class BaseCount {

. public static void main(String args[]) {

. int base = 0, dgts = 0;

. int[] bsq;

. BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));

. try {

. System.out.println("Enter a natural base:");

. base = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine ());

. System.out.println("Enter the maximum number of digits:");

. dgts = Integer.parseInt(br.readLine ());

. }//try

. catch(IOException e) {}

. bsq = new int[dgts];

. for(int i=0; i<Math.pow(base,dgts); i++) {

. for(int k=0; k<dgts; k++) {

. bsq[k] = i / (int) Math.pow(base,k) % base;

. System.out.print(bsq[dgts-k-1]);

. }//for

. System.out.println();

. }//for

. }//main

}//BaseCount

---------------------------------------

However, there seem to be problems!

For example, let base = 2 and dtgs = 4.

The program outputs:

The program does not output 0100 when i = 4.Code (Text):

Enter a natural base:

2

Enter the maximum number of digits:

4

0000

0001

0010

0011

0000

0101

0110

0111

0100

1001

1010

1011

1000

1101

1110

1111

Even more, the program outputs 0100 when it should output 1000.

Why is this so??
