    The forum has reformatted the text of your posting. It hides part of the expression by changing it to an icon.

    What is the condition on the if statement supposed to test for?

    What is the following supposed to mean?
    then ; your : for a ;/0

    i was informed by a friend that that was the line of code i wanted, javas syntax is a bit different from c and c++ and i knew that was a problem with it substituting the symbal if (!repeat&&;=)
    then ; your : for a ;/0;

    What is the condition that you want to test?
    can you say it in English?

    The syntax of Java is very similar to that of C for conditions.

    ; without surrounding 's or "s is a syntax character used by the compiler to end statements. If you want it to be data, add the 's for char or "s for a String.

    trying to compare the value set to ;
    Value of what variable? You give variables values using an assignment statement.
    char aChar = ';';
