    Default Please help me finish this character count code!

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Names {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    String firstName;
    String lastName;
    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);

    System.out.println("Enter first name: ");
    firstName = in.next(); // next() or nextline()

    System.out.println("Enter last name: ");
    lastName = in.next(); // next() or nextline()



    in.close(); //optional


    }
    }

    So I have this code I am working on ^^ and I need help finishing it, basically after asking for the first name and last name I need the output to count the characters (using charAt) and then to give the initials of the first and last name that are imputed by the user. If you could help me finish off this code that would be amazing!

    need the output to count the characters
    What have you tried? Where have you tried using the charAt method?
    Can you describe the steps you would take if you were to do the task manually with paper and pencil?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
