    Default Can someone please help me with creating a menu with while-loops and switch-statements?

    Hello everyone!

    I'm trying to create a menu where you have four options:

    • You can register a bird you have seen in a textfile.
    • You can write the type of a bird you have seen.
    • You can write the place where you have seen the bird.
    • Close the program

    Can someone help me with creating one? I'm a bit stuck and I keep getting errors so I would appreciate if someone could help me program a menu with these four options.

    Also for the first option, registering a bird, this is what i've done.

       import easyIO.*;
            class Birds {
    	    public static void main(String[] args) {
            In press = new In();
            Out birds = new Out("birdfile.txt", true);
            birds.out("Birds name: ");
            String biName = press.inLine();
            birds.out("Sex: ");
            String biSex = press.inLine();
            birds.out("Place for observation: ");
            String plObs = press.inLine();
            birds.out("Date of observation: ");
            int date = press.inInt();
            System.out.println("Birds name: ")

    I havent started on the other 3 options yet. Was thinkg about getting the menu done first, but got stuck

    Thanks alot for help
