    Default Whats wrong with this Pig Latin code?

    heres my code so far...


    import java.util.StringTokenizer;
     
    public class Piglatin{
     
    public void processLine (Strin line){
    StringTokenizer str = new StringTokenizer(line);
    while (str.hasMoreTokens()){
    String token = str.nextToken();
    String pigToken = this.pigConvert(token);
    finalPigLatinString += " " + pigToken;
    }
    System.out.println(finalPigLatinString);
    }
     
    public String pigConvert(Strign inputToken){
    //this will convert my token to a pig token
    char firstChar = inputString.charAt[0];
    if (isVowel(firstChar)){
    t += token + "ay ";
    // just add 'way' to the word
    }
    else{
    t += token.substring(1,token.length())+firstChar.toString().toLowerCase()+"ay ";
    }
    }
     
    public boolean isVowel (char c){
    //takes in a char and returns true if it is a vowel and returns false if it is not
    if(someChar=='a'||someChar=='e'||someChar=='i'||someChar=='o'||someChar=='u'
    ||someChar=='A'||someChar=='E'||someChar=='I'||someChar=='O'||someChar=='U')
    {
    return true;
    }
    else
    return false;
    }
    }

    Also, see my signature on asking questions the smart way. You can't simply dump your code here without an explanation and hope for help- what's the problem? Post an SSCCE along with any exceptions or unwanted behaviors you're getting, and we'll go from there. Be specific.
