    Default Array help

    package lab5;
    public class ArrayFirst {
    static void main(String[] args) {
    for (int i=0; i<args.length; ++i)
    float[] a = {0.1f, 1.2f, 2.3f, 3.4f};
    int n = a.length;
    	print("initial array a","a",a);
    	float[] b = new float[n]; // an array of n zeros
    	for (int i=0; i<n; ++i)
    		b[i] = a[i];
    	print("b = copy of a","b",b);
    	float[] c = new float[n];
    	for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
    		c[0] = a[3];
    		c[1] = a[2];
    		c[2] = a[1];
    		c[3] = a[0];
    	print("c = reverse of b","c",c);
    	float[] d = new float[n];
    	for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
    		d[i] = (float) Math.sin(c[i]);
    	print("d = sine of c","c",c);
    	float min = d[0];{
    		if (d[1]<min) min = d[1];
    		if (d[2]<min) min = d[2];
    		if (d[3]<min) min = d[3];
    		System.out.println("min = "+min);}
    	float max = d[0];{
    		if (d[1]>max) max = d[1];
    		if (d[2]>max) max = d[2];
    		if (d[3]>max) max = d[3];
    	System.out.println("max = "+max);}
    	float sum = d[0]+d[1]+d[2]+d[3];{
    		System.out.println("sum = "+sum);}
    private static boolean isSorted(float[] a) {
    	System.out.println("a sorted?");
    	if (a[0] <= a[1] && a[1] <= a[2] && a[2] <= a[3]){
    		return true;
    		return false;
    private static void print(String heading, String aname, float[] a) {
    	for (int i=0; i<a.length; ++i)
    		System.out.println(aname+ "["+i+"] = "+a[i]);

    The isSorted portion of the program won't print.

    Hello mlan,

    It doesn't look like the isSorted method is called at any time?

    I didn't call it into the main of the program, yes?
