    Default How to store the contents of string array to 2 dimensional character array

    Hi,the following code asks for grid size and then takes the input values from the keyboard and stores contents in "str".Now I want to store contents of "str" in a 2-dimensional character array named char[][] board. How do I do that? Please be patient I am new to coding.

    Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
     
    System.out.println("Enter grid size");
     
           int t = s.nextInt(); // read number of elements
           s.nextLine(); // consume new line
         System.out.println("Enter the values");
         int d = s.nextInt(); // read number of elements
            s.nextLine();
             String str[] = new String[t];
     
            for(int k=0;k<t;k++)
            {
             str[k]=s.nextLine();
           }
     
    Sample Output:
    Enter grid size
    3
    Enter the values

    store contents of "str" in a 2-dimensional character array named char[][] board.
    Can you give example Strings and the desired array contents?
