    Default Finding a character in acharacter array at specific index, without using the String class.

    I am working on an assignment where I cannot use the String class. I have to basically create my own String class, with a few basic methods. I am currently working on the part where I have to find the character at index[x] and do not really know how to work my way around this. Any ideas?

    Default Re: Finding a character in acharacter array at specific index, without using the String class.

    If you are working with an array, you would not use any String class methods.
    find the character at index[x]
    If index[x] is an int value it can be used as the index into another array:
    anArray[anotherArray[x]];  // index into anArray using the value at anotherArray[x]
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
