    Post Please help! Noob java user here

    I'm trying to make a code that is a little over my knowledge but I'm trying. Anyways, here's what I have to do:

    -Use string concatenation to obtain the user’s full name.

    -Compare the length of the first and last name and if they are the same print:
    “Hello First Last”
    “Your first and last name have both n letters”
    where First and Last are the first name and last name, and n is the length of these names.

    -If the first and last name are of different size, print:
    “Hello First Last”
    “ The length of your first name is: n”
    “ The length of your last name is: m”
    where First and Last are the first name and last name, and n and m are the lengths of these names.

    -Create a loop to print a table with all the characters in the user’s full name and their corresponding ASCII value. You may use the charAt() method of the String class to identify each of the characters in the full name and type cast them as int to obtain their ASCII value.

    -Print out the user’s age with the format shown in the example below.

    -Print out the year the user was born with the format shown in the example below. This year is obtained by subtracting the age from the current year.

    -Using increment, increase the age by one and create the output shown in the example below.

    -Using compound assignment operators, increase the age by 4 more and create the output shown in the example below.

    So far, I've gotten the easy stuff done already but I'm stuck with the rest of it.

    Please help!!!

    How about posting what you already have so we don't have to start from scratch? It will be way easier to help you edit your own code than writing it from scratch ourselves.

    Also a few places you say "see output below" but gave us nothing.

    Pretty much everything you need to do is in the Java API.

    That is the beauty of Java. Use it.
