    Default array to store multiple names and data

    Hello everyone, I realise that i have written in the wrong section, feel free to move my post into the correct section..

    Here is my code below..

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class test{
    public static void main(String args[])
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    int array[] = new int [5];
    System.out.println("Enter a number");
    	public static void name(int y[])
    	Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    	for (int i=0;i<y.length;i++)
    		y[i] = input.nextInt();

    What i want to do is increment my variable' i' without the for loop, because i need ask additional questions afterwards...Thanks!

    I'm a little confused what your trying to do. Why don't you just use another variable instead of I? Like x and use x++; or just run the whole thing through a while?

    You can move the increment expression out of the for loop, and move it to wherever you want.
    for (int i = 0; i < j; /*empty*/) {
        // ...
