    Talking Need Help for encrypt/decrypt.

    Hi! I need help for my program. This program encrypts and decrypts a string. It is actually working but I want to make changes.

    In my program, when you choose to encrypt a word, it encrypts the word then it ends its process. I want to go back to the "main option" where the user can decrypt the string he just encrypted. How do you do that?

    Here's the code:
    import java.io.*;
     
    class MC14{
     
    	static BufferedReader keyboard=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
      	static PrintWriter screen=new PrintWriter(System.out, true);	//Setting up input/output variables.
     
     
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
     
    	int choice;
    	String str;
     
    	screen.println("ENCRYPT & DECRYPT");
    	screen.println();
    	screen.println("Please enter the text to be encrypted/decrypted.");
    	screen.println();
    	str = keyboard.readLine();
     
    	screen.println();
    	screen.println();
    	screen.println("Choose an option: ");
    	screen.println();
    	screen.println("1) Encrypt string. \n2) Decrypt string.");
    	screen.println();
     
    	choice = new Integer(keyboard.readLine()).intValue();
     
     
    		switch(choice){
     
    			case 1:
    					screen.println("Encrypted string:");
    					screen.println();
    					screen.println(encrypt(str));
    					screen.println();
    					break;
    			case 2:
    					screen.println("Decrypted string:");
    					screen.println();
    					screen.println(decrypt(str));
    					screen.println();
    					break;
    		}
     
    }
     
     
    public static String encrypt(String str) {
     
    	str = str.toLowerCase(); //convert string to lower case to avoid problems
     
    	int length = str.length();
    	int i,count,inc;
    	char[] array = new char[length];	//variables used in the method
    	String encrypted;
     
     
     
    	for(i=0;i<length;i++){array[i] = str.charAt(i);} //Places each character in the string
    													 //into an array index.
     
     
    	for(count=0;count<array.length;count++){ //for each item in the array the following switch is performed
     
    		switch(array[count]){				//This switch statement changes the character
    											//within each array index. This is the start

    Something like this?
    screen.println("ENCRYPT & DECRYPT");
    screen.println();
    screen.println("Enter q to exit");
     
    String str  = keyboard.readLine();
    while (!str.equals('q') ){
        ///do work here
      str  = keyboard.readLine();
    }
