    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    YOUR CODE HERE
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    (Note: I rarely try to read unformatted code)

    Where are the words output? Can the code save the lengths of those words to be used to compute the value you want?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
