    Default Need help with index of coincedence

    Output two similar length strings that have the same letters in their letter count.

    Is there a website I can view to learn to do this? I tried searching but counldn't find anything.

    Why not give it a try yourself? This is a fundamental aspect of programming - problem solving. Break the problem down, how would you do this by hand? Write it out on paper, then translate to code. Make use of the java API, for example the String class.

    Should I change both strings into array, then check the array index in a for statement? The problem is that there are a lot of scripts that I have not seen before and I am sure there is a particular one for this problem.

    import java.util.*;
    public class indexofcoincedence
    {public static void main (String[] args)
    {
    int len1=0; int len2=0;
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.println( "Enter a word");
    String word1 = input.nextLine();
    System.out.println( "Enter a word");
    String word2 = input.nextLine();
    len1=word1.length();
    len2=word2.length();
    while (len1==len2)
    {

    }
    }
    }

    Evidently I'm wasting my time here. Anywhere else you posted that you would like to disclose?
