    There is no need to double post your question - your other post has been removed. Next, each category has an announcements thread at the top and in it you will find explicit instructions on how to use the highlight/code tags. Next, you mention error: it helps to explain what error you are getting. You are lucky the code is somewhat straightforward that the problem is evident...look closely at how you are using the equals, you are not comparing String objects directly.

    Where's your main method?


    All intelligent thoughts have already been thought;
    what is necessary is only to try to think them again.
