    How do you want to separate them? By whitespace?

    Okay. Did you read the link I gave you? It links to a very useful function. What happened when you tried it out?

    Default Re: separate strings

    i read it and i don't know if i can use all the methods there beacuse in the homework they recomended that i can use onlt specific method
    so i think if i use str.length then i can go all over the text until i get space and get the word to a list
    what do u think?

    If your homework told you what you could and could not use, what's the point in asking a forum what you should use? We don't know your requirements unless you tell us about them up front.

    you can just use splitting. eg, splitting by whitespace

    String str = "hello world my nane is mike"
    String s[] = str.split("\\s+")

    note, each individual word is stored in a String array. you can store them in a link list or whatever as you like.

    I think str.split(" ") would work too.


    LinkedList<String> ll = new LinkedList<String>();
    for (int i =0; i < s.length; i++)
    {
    ll.add(s[i]);
    }

    of course, but note that its only one space, (not white space, which includes tabs etc). If all the "blanks" between the words are tabs, it will not work.
