    What the heck is Wap. Does that refer to "Write a program"? Or what? (Reminds me of those "wap-wap-wap-wap" sounds that the Highway Patrol helicopters make every time they chase me.)

    Anyhow...

    What kind of help would you like with your Wap assignment? What have you done so far?


    Cheers!

    Wap is actually Write a program, sorry about that. We basically have to display the pig latin version of any word accepted from the user like if the user wants to display the word Hello in pig latin form then the output would be ifmmp. I figured out that in the english alphabet if you take the H from Hello and the i from ifmmp then we can see that i comes after H. In the same manner the e in Hello comes before the f in ifmmp, the two l's in Hello come before the two m's in ifmmp and that the o in Hello comes before the p in ifmmp. So basically it from (H to i), (e to f), (l to m), (l to m) and (o to p). So basically it is from Hello to ifmmp.

    I tried the following program but then there is a problem when it comes to compiling the program:
    The error is that the compiler cannot find the variable outstr.


    /*
    * Write a program to accept a word and display its equivalent pig- latin word.
    * Hello
    * ifmmp
    */
    class piglatin
    {
    public static void main(String str)
    {
    for ( int i = 0;i < str.length(); i++)
    {
    char ch = str.charAt(i);
    ch ++;
    outstr = outstr + ch;
    }
    System.out.println("The equivalent pig- latin of " + str + " is" +outstr);
    }
    }

    You found it!!

    Now fix it. The variable needs to be declared before it can be used.
