    Default Creating a Simple, Beginner-Level Vowel Counter

    Hello!

    Thank you to all that assisted me with my question last week! I appreciate it so much.

    But I hit another wall this week, and I am looking for some help,

    What I need to do is create a program that outputs the number of vowels, consonants, words, spaces, and special characters in a given sentence. I need to implement it with a function as well.

    So I was thinking I would use a void function with an argument.

    I am doing one part at a time, in this case, the vowel counter.

    Here is my calling program:

    public class JNumberOfItems
    {
        public static void main(String[] Theory)
        {
     
            JStringSource MyStringSource = new JStringSource();
     
     
            MyStringSource.Vowels("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog");
     
        }
    }

    and here is my function:

    public class JStringSource
    {
        void Vowels(String SentenceOne )
        {
     
        }
     
     
    }

    Now I know what you're thinking - there's nothing there! Well that is because I am truly at a loss as to what steps I should be taking now. I want to use a loop, if or switch command, but I don't really know where to go.

    I researched this online left and right and everything I am finding has do do with the scanner class and keyboard imputs and more complicated stuff than what I am looking for.

    Thank you for your patience and your help!

    Just an update - I figured out how to find the number of vowels, consonants, spaces, words, and special characters.

    I have one more question regarding math that I will post in a separate forum.
