    Default Using the .equals method

    I don't understand why when I run my program any strings with spaces in them are not considered equal. for example:
    when I run my program and enter "shih tzu" it does not equal this statement:

    newBreed.toLowerCase().equals("shih tzu")

    Is there some type of discrepancy for strings with spaces in them? It works for all of my conditions without spaces in the string.

    Default Re: Using the .equals method

    I ran a test and found that it does cut off my data entry after the first word, but why does it do this?

    What code are you using to get the keyboard input?

    The problem could be that the code you're using is, effectively though not literally, getNextWord(), rather then getNextEverythingIEnter().
