    Default Repeating different parts of a program

    currently i'm working on a java assignment in class. the instructor is asking us to repeat a different part of the program.

    for example, through an if statement, if the input from the user meets the condition of the if statement then the loops statement before it would be repeated.

    i dont know how im suppose to write that because i am new to java.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Typically, any code that may be required to be executed from different points in the program flow is factored out to a separate method.

    You can usually repeat a part of a program by

    while(condition)
    {
    code
    }

    or

    for (int x = whatever; x < something; x++)
    {
    code
    }

    or something like that.
