    Default How do I combine two strings in an array?

    ea:
    Array[1]="Hi I'm ";
    Array[2] = "Paul";
    Array[3] = "RAGGLE";
    Array[4] = "FRAGGLE";

    I want to push "HI I'm Paul" and "RAGGLE FRAGGLE" so the array looks like this when I'm done.

    Array[1] = "Hi I'm Paul";
    Array[2] = "RAGGLE FRAGGLE";

    Default Re: How do I combine two strings in an array?

        public String[] combine(String[] array){
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            String[] combined = {};
            for(int i = 0; i < array.length/2; i + 2){
                    sb.add(array[i] + array[i++);
                    combined[i/2] = sb.toString();
            }
            return combined;
        }

    I'm not completely sure but I believe this would be how to do that the methods may not be the correct name though.

    Edit: Nvm, you would have to also clear the data in the sb so everything wouldn't just be smashed together.

    Use assignment statements and concatenation.
