    Default Re: change DATE

    Hello
    in Iran the calendars write based on the solar year that called "Shamsi calendar ".for example year 2012 in Gregorian calendar equal to year 1391.
    now I want to write a program in java with SimpleDateFormat, that when String Pattern = "*yyyy.MM.dd HH:mm:ss"; String Date = "2000.12.07 02:08:56";
    If a pattern begins with the letter “*”, convert and print the current time/date based on the Shamsi calendar!
    can you help me?
    thank

    --- Update ---

    The other question is: who we can get two line input from command line argument and then change line to two String?
    for example:
    in command line argument:
    abcdef
    ghijk
    then in Main:
    String a="abcdef";
    String b="ghijk";
    thank

    input from command line argument
    The arguments on the command line are passed to the main(String[] args) method in its String array argument: args

    Yes, that would copy two String references from the args array to some other variables.
