    Hi,
    I'm using the following code that takes input from the user for votes that are counted on a scale of 1-7, the programme terminates taking input once 0 is entered.

    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*; 
     
    public class Arrays1 {
     
    	/**
    	 * @param args
    	 */
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException{
     
    		Scanner a = new Scanner(new File("C:\\temp_Name\\votes.txt"));
    		int maxIndx = -1;
    		String name[] = new String[8];
    		name[0] = ""; 
    		while(a.hasNext()){
    			maxIndx++;
    			name[maxIndx] = a.next();  
    		}
    		a.close(); 
     
    		int results[] = new int[name.length]; 
     
     
    		Scanner kbb = new Scanner(System.in);
    		System.out.println("Enter your vote number, 1. Victor Taylor 2. Denise Duncan 3. Kamal Ramdhan 4. Michael Ali 5. Anisa Shah 6. Carol Khan 7. Gary Owen");
    		int v = kbb.nextInt();
     
    		while((v !=0) && (v<=7)){ 
    		{
    			Scanner kb = new Scanner(System.in);
    			System.out.println("Enter your vote number, 1. Victor Taylor 2. Denise Duncan 3. Kamal Ramdhan 4. Michael Ali 5. Anisa Shah 6. Carol Khan 7. Gary Owen");
    			v = kb.nextInt();
    			if(v==1){	
    				results[0] = results[0]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==2){
    				results[1] = results[1]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==3){
    				results[2] = results[2]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==4){
    				results[3] = results[3]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==5){
    				results[4] = results[4]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==6){
    				results[5] = results[5]+1; 
    			}
    			if(v==7){
    				results[6] = results[6]+1; 
    			}
    		}
     
    		FileWriter f = new FileWriter("C:\\temp_name\\results.txt");
    		PrintWriter p = new PrintWriter(f);
     
    		p.print(results); 
     
    		p.close();
    		f.close();
    	}
    }
    }

    When I compile this program, and check the file results.txt it only says '[I@14318bb', I want it to list the count of each number as well as a count of all the invalid votes e.g. any vote that was above 7 and/or 0.

    Help please!
