    Default Need Help with my hmwk! Java noob!

    Hey Guys,

    This is my first full week in my first computer software engineering java class. I need some help with my hmwk. I dont understand the for loop concept or and changing the size of the diagram..

    If someone could help me out, that would be great!!!
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________
    In the second part of the assignment, you are going to generate output that looks like the following:
    /**\
    //**\\
    ///**\\\
    ////**\\\\
    /////**\\\\\
    +=*=*=*=*=*=*+
    |../\..../\..|
    |./\/\../\/\.|
    |/\/\/\/\/\/\|
    |\/\/\/\/\/\/|
    |.\/\/..\/\/.|
    |..\/....\/..|
    +=*=*=*=*=*=*+
    |\/\/\/\/\/\/|
    |.\/\/..\/\/.|
    |..\/....\/..|
    |../\..../\..|
    |./\/\../\/\.|
    |/\/\/\/\/\/\|
    +=*=*=*=*=*=*+
    /**\
    //**\\
    ///**\\\
    ////**\\\\
    /////**\\\\\
    You are to reproduce this output exactly. You are to use a class constant to make it possible to change a single number in one place in the program to have it produce a corresponding figure of a different size. The size of the figure above is 3 because various subfigures in the middle of the output have a height of 3. These subfigures have the property that their height determines their width, so there is only one size variable.
    This assignment is meant to give you practice with the constructs from Chapters 1 and 2. This will require you to create nested for loops with print and println statements that use the class constant. You may use constructs from Chapter 3, although you are not required to do so and you will receive no extra credit for doing so. You may not use any programming constructs that are not in Chapters 1 through 3 of the textbook.
    You should continue to use static methods to structure your solution. You should try to avoid significant redundancy and you should structure your program in such a way that the methods match the structure of the output itself. You are required to indent your code properly and will lose points for poor indentation. You should localize variables whenever possible.
    Include a comment at the beginning of your program with basic information and a description of the program and include a comment for each method. Name your file DrawRocket.java and turn in your program electronically through the “assignments” link on the class web page.
    On any given execution your program will produce just one version of this figure, but it should be possible to change the value of the class constant to have your program produce a figure of a different size. For example, with subfigures of height 5, the output should look like the rocket below. (Note: The output-comparison tool on the course web-site has both size rockets.)

    This should get you started
    System.out.println("/**\\\n//**\\\\\n///**\\\\\\\n////**\\\\\\\\\n/////**\\\\\\\\\\\n+=*=*=*=*=*=*+");
    System.out.println("|../\\..../\\..|\n|./\\/\\../\\/\\.|\n|/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\|\n|\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/|\n|.\\/\\/..\\/\\/.|\n|..\\/....\\/..|\n+=*=*=*=*=*=*+\n");
    System.out.println("|\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/|\n|.\\/\\/..\\/\\/.|\n|..\\/....\\/..|\n|../\\..../\\..|\n|./\\/\\../\\/\\.|\n|/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\/\\|\n+=*=*=*=*=*=*+");
    System.out.println(/**\\\n//**\\\\\n///**\\\\\\\n////**\\\\\\\\\n/////**\\\\\\\\\\");

    [/JK]

    But yes, what have you tried?
