    (what is a cross post? do we post here or there?)

    this code doesn't compile.
    1. Strings are objects, and that means they start with a capital.
    2. Strings can't be initialized like that ([104, 105, 103])
    string s =[104, 105, 103];

    This code would work,
    AKA: String s = "104, 105, 103";

    About converting strings to characters.
    Java Convert Character to String

    1) it seems far more useful to have an int array for this problem(up to you to understand what the teacher wants)
    int[] myString = {104, 105, 103};

    2) then all you have to do is use a "char" variable to convert it.
    char oneLetter = (char)myString[0]; (this converts 104 into a char, which is 'h')

    Hope this helps,
