Thread: Trouble passing parameters!

    Cool Trouble passing parameters!

    I'm trying to write a method that expects an array of int and two intS parameters, which represent the starting position and ending position of a subarray within the parameter array.

    So here's the code I've written, trying to do this, but I'm getting errors having to do with the parameter passing. I don't think I'm doing it quite right, clearly...

    I aim for the output of '10 11 12'.
    Please help!

    public class testing{
    public static void main(String args[])
    int[]firstArray = {8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13};  //original string
    subArray(int[]firstArray, 2, 4);  //trying to pass these parameters to method subArray
    public static void subArray (int[]originalArray, int S2, int S2) //parameters - trying to get from previous line. 
    	int[] copy = new int[3]          //Instantiating new array to fill with contents from original array.
    	System.arraycopy(originalArray[], 1, copy[], 0, 3);      //copying over contents...
    	for (int i = 0; i < copy.length; i++){
    			System.out.println(copy[i]);} // Will produce contents of new array 'copy'
