    I'm not sure what you are trying to do.
    What would be the results of comparing:
    char[] someChars = {' ','r',' ','e'};
    with
    String str = "tree";

    Are you looking for words that are 4 chars long and have r in 2nd and and e in 4th position?

    Use a loop and one of the String class's methods to get the char one by one
    or put the String into a StringBuffer and do it.
