    Default Need help with a tic tac toe program

    I just don't even know how to start this. Our teacher is making us make a tic tac toe game for our assignment. What I particularly need help with is how to go about setting up the board and designating the sports the user will use.

    I don't think that we'll be able to give you much help until you can tell more details about your problem and ask a more specific question. Also my experience with folks who state "I just don't know how to start..." is that they are much better off if they arrange a meeting with their instructor for some intense face-to-face help.

    Okay well one thing in particular I need assistance with is how would I go about assigning X or O to a certain value to be represented by the board.
    - - - is how I set up my board. How can I put X to be in the middle, or on the right, or top right?

    translates to

    [0] [1] [2]
    [3] [4] [5]
    [6] [7] [8]

    translates to

    int[] grid = new int[9]

    translates to

    for(int i = 0; i < grid.length; i++) {
    doSomethingCoolTo(grid[i]);
    }

    translates to

    [0,0] [0,1] [0,2]
    [1,0] [1,1] [1,2]
    [2,0] [2,1] [2,2]

    translates to

    int[][] grid = new int[rows*cols];

    translates to

    for(int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
    for(int j = 0; j < cols; j++) {
    doSomethingCoolTo(grid[i][j]);
    }
    }
