    Default Please help me.

    Click the title of the assignment to see Due Date and submission features.

    Write a program that determines the number of Dots in an input line. Read in the line into a string. Next use the charAt( ) method in a loop to access the characters one by one.

    Your program should have comments towards the top of the program. Copy at least two sample runs and paste as a comment at the bottom of the program. At least one sample run would be a string that has a few blanks. At least one sample run would be a string that does not have any blanks.

    Use Assign5_{your last name} as the name of the program.

    Submit one file, the Java file only.

    As a general rule; no credit is given to work submitted late. If any consideration is given for partial credit; such decision will be made at the end of the semester; at the point in time when the Course Letter grade is determined.


    I don't know how to begin. I am taking this class online and I am so confused.

    Start by making a list of the steps the program needs to do.
    Then pick the first step and work on it.

    One of the steps I see is:
    Read in the line into a string.
    Start with that one. Define a class with a main() method and add code to the method that reads a line into a String. Then print out the contents of the String.
    When that works move to the next step in the list of steps you've made.

    The list can change as code is written and as you see more details about what the program needs to do.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
