    Default Java beginner

    Hi my interviewer said that if i can solve this problem he will get me a job he asked me: 'creates an integer array of size N, containing integers with values from 0 to N - 1, all different from eachother and prints them on the screen'

    so i have no idea what he was talking about but i tried to come up with a program like this but had 8 errors of being illegal star of expression needed ] etc.:
    public class recklesspk
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
     
    int a[N]; // This is the input
    int products_below[N];
    p=1;
    for(int i=0;i<N;++i)
    {
      products_below[i]=p;
      p*=a[i];
    }
     
    int products_above[N];
    p=1;
    for(int i=N-1;i>=0;--i)
    {
      products_above[i]=p;
      p*=a[i];
    }
     
    int products[N]; // This is the result
    for(int i=0;i<N;++i)
    {
      products[i]=products_below[i]*products_above[i];
    }
    }
    }

    had 8 errors
    Please copy the full text of the error messages and paste them here.

    Please edit your post and properly format the code. Statements should be indented to show their logic nesting level and not all start in the first column.
