Help with basic program

The program I am writing is supposed to ask the user to input a 4-digit Integer whose digits are not all the same, and then place the number in descending and ascending order, then subtract until the number 6174 is met.
I'm very new with java but I can't seem to get my if statement to loop back until the condition I want is met.
I know that a while statement will loop back, but when I tried that it just kept looping over and over again.
Any help and tips for later on in my project will be great.
import java.util.Scanner;
public class program2
    public static void main(String[] args)
      int      Number, D1, D2, D3, D4, Temp;
      Scanner  Keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
      boolean  NoNumberYet;
      System.out.println("Please enter a 4-digit positive integer whose digits are all different: ");
      Number = Keyboard.nextInt();
      D1 = (Number/1000);
      D2 = (Number/100) %10;
      D3 = (Number/10) %10;
      D4 =  Number %10;
      NoNumberYet = true;
      while(NoNumberYet) 
        if (D1 == D2 && D2 == D3 && D3 == D4)
           NoNumberYet = false;
           System.out.println("The number you entered contains the same digits.");
           System.out.print("Please re-enter the number: ");
           Number = Keyboard.nextInt();
    }

On to a new question.
I need to subtract the rearranged descending number by the ascending arranged number.
I need to know how to place my rearranged digits in place of the original number and then subtract it.
Heres what I have so far:
import java.util.Scanner;
public class program2
    public static void main(String[] args)
      int      Number, d1, d2, d3, d4, temp;
      Scanner  Keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Please enter a 4-digit positive integer whose digits are all different: ");
      Number = Keyboard.nextInt();
      d1 = (Number/1000);
      d2 = (Number/100) %10;
      d3 = (Number/10) %10;
      d4 =  Number %10;
      if (d1 == d2 && d2 == d3 && d3 == d4)
           System.out.println("The number you entered contains the same digits.");
           System.out.print("Please re-enter the number: ");
           Number = Keyboard.nextInt();
      if (d1 < d2)
         temp = d1;
         d1   = d2;
         d2   = temp;
      if (d2 < d3)
         temp = d2;
         d2   = d3;
         d3   = temp;
      if (d3 < d4)
         temp = d3;
         d3   = d4;
         d4   = temp;
      if (d1 < d2)
         temp = d1;
         d1   = d2;
         d2   = temp;
      if (d2 < d3)
         temp = d2;
         d2   = d3;
         d3   = temp;
      if (d1 < d2)
         temp = d1;
         d1   = d2;
         d2   = temp;
}Any help would be appreciated, also the output needs to appear on screen.
My guess is that I need to somehow drop d1, d2 ,d3, and d4 into a new variable, and then subtract from the reverse. I dont know how to drop the digits into a new number, or the original entered number.
Thanks.

  • Need help with basic program.....!

    I've to write a program that generates a random number, which the user has to try and guess, after each guess they're told whether it's too high or too low etc., I've gotten this far, however, the user has only 10 guesses.... In my program I've used a while loop and the user gets an infinite number of guesses, I know I'm supposed to use a for loop, but can't seem to get it to work properly. Also, when the user guesses the number, the program then has to print out how many guesses it took, and I have no idea how to get it to do this AT ALL!!!

    help with this, thanks v. much!!!!Hey not every book covers every aspect of Java (if you haven't got a book and don't want to buy 1 i recommend an online tutorial) If u want the user to have an infinate number of guesses, use an infinate while loop. Put this in a file called app.java:
    import java.applet.Applet;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class app extends Applet implements ActionListener
         JLabel lbl=new JLabel("Guess a number between 0 and 10:");
         JTextField txtfield=new JTextField(20);
         JButton button=new JButton("Guess...");
         JLabel lbl2=new JLabel();
         int randomnumber=Math.round((float)Math.random()*10);
         public void init()
              add(lbl);
              add(txtfield);
              add(button);
              button.addActionListener(this);
         public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e)
              String s=new String("");
              s+=randomnumber;
              if (e.getSource().equals(button) && txtfield.getText().equals(s))
                   setBackground(Color.white);
                   setForeground(Color.black);
                   lbl2.setText("Got it!");
                   add(lbl2);
                   validate();
              else
                   setBackground(Color.white);
                   setForeground(Color.black);
                   if (Integer.parseInt(txtfield.getText())>randomnumber)
                   lbl2.setText("Too High!");
                   else
                   lbl2.setText("Too Low!");
                   add(lbl2);
                   validate();
    Then create a HTML document in the classes folder:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>APPLET</TITLE>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY>
    <HR>
    <CENTER>
    <APPLET
         CODE=app.class
         WIDTH=400
         HEIGHT=200 >
    </APPLET>
    </CENTER>
    <HR>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>
    It will do what you wish. If you want to have more then 10 numbers to guess, for example 100, do this:
    int randomnumber=Math.round((float)Math.random()*100);
    Does that answer your question?

  • Need help with basic program - I am new to this

    I need to write a very basic code to display my name on the screen as follows

    You need to store the patterns for each letter of the alphabet somewhere - say in an array. You can then read out the patterns to build up strings.
    For example:String[][][] letters = new String[][]
    { {"A", "  A  " ... },
      { "R", "RRRR", "R    R", "R    R", "RRRR", "R    R", "R    R"},
    }

  • Help with first program

    I just started taking a class in Flash CS4 and I have a basic program that I'm suppose to develop for my first project. My problem is that I'm not good at programming yet so I was wondering if anyone is able to help me out. Here is what I'm suppose to do.
    Use flash CS3 to create a mini marble game. It should have the following elements:
    •         a) The first scene should have a single button labeled "start game", placed at the exact center of an 800*600 pixel screen. A simple background image containing a polka dot pattern should fill the background layer for this intro screen.
    •         b) When the start button is pressed, the game should show a new screen with a solid color background (which may be white). Two marbles, represented by filled circles (80 pixels of radius or 80 by 80 pixel bounding box) of two different colors should appear. The first marble should appear at the exact center of the stage, the second marble at either a random location (extra credit for this) or one of four possible locations OTHER than the area allocated for the first marble.
    •         c) Using the mouse or any keystroke, the player should be able to "start" the second marble in the direction of the first at a constant speed of 24 pixels per second (use an event handler and the Enter_Frame event, as well as a 12 fps speed for the movieclip, to establish the speed of the marble).
    •         d) When the first marble collides with the second, it should stop it's motion, and the second marble should start moving at the same speed in the same direction than the first one until it leaves the screen.
    •         e) Display a "Game Over" sign, when the second marble has left the screen.
    •         f) Publish the movie, and upload both the fla and swf here.
    I finish the a) section but I don't know what to do with the rest. Here is my file.
    http://rapidshare.com/files/360378296/Project1.fla

    use some actionscript to code your start button to move to a new frame where your two marbles are on stage.  then apply actionscript to the 2nd marble so when it's clicked or a key is pressed you start a loop that moves that 2nd marble towards the center marble.  when the two collide (use hitTest() ), stop the 2nd marble and start moving the 1st marble.

  • Help with a Program I am writing!  Please!

    Hello All,
    This is my first post...I hope to find some answers to my program I am writing! A couple things first - I am 17, and have designed a comp. science class for myself to take while a senior in high school, since there was not one offered. My end of the 2nd term project is to write a program that encompasses the information I have learned about for the past two terms. I know the very basics, if that. Please help!
    My program involves the simple dice throwing program, 'Dice Thrower' by Kevin Boone. The full text/program write out can be found at:
    http://www.kevinboone.com/PF_DiceThrower-java.html
    I am hoping to add a part to this program that basically tells the program if the dice show doubles, pop up a little GUI window that says "You are a Winner! You Got Doubles!"
    I was thinking as I finished chapter 7 in my text book, that either an 'if/else' or 'switch' statement might be the right place to start.
    Could someone please write me a start to the program text that I need to add to 'Dice Thrower', or explain what I need to do to get started! Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.

    I know this seems like a lot of errors, but believe it or not, I actually had it up in the high teens and was able to fix some of them myself from going by previous examples, as well as looking things up in my text book. If anyone has any suggestions concerning the syntax errors of the code, please please let me know and I will work my hardest to fix them...thank you all so much for helping.

    You can't really believe that his brother did this
    for him...I did miss that copyright line at the beginning when
    I first looked it over, but you know, if it had been
    his brother, I'd be kinda impressed. This wasn't a
    25 line program. It actually would have required
    SOME thought. I doubt my brother woulda done that
    for me (notwithstanding the fact that I wouldn't need
    help for that program, and my brother isn't a
    programmer).I originally missed the comments at the top but when I saw the complexity of what was written then I knew that it was too advanced for a beginner and I relooked through the code and saw the comments.

  • Help with Recurrsion program

    I seem to be having a little problem with my program. In my main program, depending on which method comes first, the other methods wont work for example the way my main program is not, with occurance method before removeLetter method, the occurance method works fine, but my removeLetter meth won't remove the letter. But if i switch the two and have removeLetter first then it will remove the letter, but my occurance method will come back say the letter is not in the word even when it is...can someone help me?

              else System.out.println("No, the letter" + " " + n + " " + "is not present");
         void occurance(String s, char n){
              if(i < s.length()){
                   if(s.charAt(i)==n){
                        occur++;
                        i++;
                        occurance(s,n);
                   else{
                        i++;
                        occurance(s,n);
              else System.out.println("The letter" + " " + n + " " + "appears" + " " + occur + " " + "times");
         void removeLetter(String s, char n){
              if(i < s.length()){
                   if(s.charAt(i)==n){
                        s = s.replace(s.charAt(i),' ');
                        i++;
                        removeLetter(s,n);
                   else{
                        i++;
                        removeLetter(s,n);
              else System.out.println(s);
    class Program3_10{
         public static void main(String[] a) {
              CharacterRecurrance find = new CharacterRecurrance();
              String word = "mississippi";
              char letter = 's';
              find.inString(word, letter);
              System.out.println();
              find.occurance(word, letter);
              System.out.println();
              find.removeLetter(word, letter);
    }

    Or make it zero in the last step of each function. Like this-void occurance(String s, char n){
              if(i < s.length()){
                   if(s.charAt(i)==n){
                        occur++;
                        i++;
                        occurance(s,n);
                   else{
                        i++;
                        occurance(s,n);
              else{
                   System.out.println("The letter" + " " + n + " " + "appears" + " " + occur + " " + "times");
                   i=0; // reset to zero.
         }

    hi,

    Also, please take the trouble to properly spell words and use a bit of capitalization. Your question is hard to read as it is, which will most probably cause (some) people not to help you.

  • Help with Dice program.

    Hi People!
    This is the homework my professor assigned for me.
    Assignment 2: Write a program that rolls two dice 1000 times, counting the number of box cars (two sixes) that occur, in object-oriented way. (In other words, do not make all your code in one main() method. Use classes and objects.) Use a overloaded constructors.
    I have to use two classes for it. One of is the Dice(Below), and the other would be the client
    This is what I have for the dice part so far.
    public class DiceServer {
    public static void main (String[] args)
    final int ROLLS = 1000;
    int Boxcars = 0, num1, num2;
    Die die1 = new Die();
    Die die2 = new Die();
    for (int roll = 1; roll <= ROLLS; roll++)
    num1 = die1.roll();
    num2 = die2.roll();
    if (num1 == 6 && num2== 6)
    Boxcars++;
    System.out.println("Number of rolls: " + ROLLS);
    System.out.println("Number of Box Cars: " + Boxcars);
    I'm getting an error about the symbol not being resolved, and it's pointing at "Die die1 = new Die();". Can someone please help me. Thank you.
    Also, can someone plaese get me started on the Client Class. Thanks

    Hi,
    I've gotten pretty far with this program thanks to all your help but I've got another question.
    My program so far has been able to display the result of rolling 2 six sided dice 1000 times. I've used Boxcars.java as my Client and Die.java as my overloaded constructor. Now I want to display the number of Boxcars(Double six)by rolling a six-sided die and a 20 sided die together.
    My question is would I code that in Boxcars.java or Die.java.
    Thank you!!!
    Boxcars.java
    public class BoxCars {
    public static void main (String[] args)
    final int ROLLS = 1000;
    int Boxcars = 0, num1, num2;
    Die die1 = new Die();
    Die die2 = new Die();
    for (int roll = 1; roll <= ROLLS; roll++)
    num1 = die1.roll();
    num2 = die2.roll();
    if (num1 == 6 && num2== 6)
    Boxcars++;
    System.out.println("Number of rolls: " + ROLLS);
    System.out.println("Number of Box Cars: " + Boxcars);
    Die.java
    public class Die {
    private final int MIN_FACES = 4;
    private int numFaces;
    private int faceValue;
    public Die ()
    numFaces = 6;
    faceValue = 1;
    public Die (int faces)
    if (faces < MIN_FACES)
    numFaces = 6;
    else
    numFaces = faces;
    faceValue = 1;
    public int roll ()
    faceValue = (int) (Math.random() * numFaces) + 1;
    return faceValue;

  • Little Help with my program..

    Ok... I am not completely finished with the program but I need to figure out something before I move on. This program is reading in information from a file. The thing I am having a problem with is how I can get it to add the GPA for each group of people, instead of adding the GPA for everyone in the file!! This program is basically reading in, the "groups living group", the name of each student, and their GPA. If you run my program, you will see a printout of "GPA sum in group" and GPA sum overall, I figured out how to get the sum overall for all the groups, but I cant figure out how to get the sum for each individual group! I hope this makes sense!!! If you need more clarification just ask!!! Thanks in advance! Also, I have compiled the program already and it runs just fine..!
    I will give you the information from the file being read in. Here it is
    Kappa Alpha Tau Sorority
    Hollander 3.347
    LaFarge 1.110

  • Help with Tree Program

    I'm having some problems with my program. It's a binary tree of names but they aren't organized in any particular order and names can repeat. I built the tree correctly but the problem comes in writing a method. I have to write method pathLength with parameters (Treenode, Person (object), and level (starts as 1) ) it returns the longest path from the TreeNode to the node containing the Person. My code seems to work for most of the names on the tree except for one or two and I can't see why. Here's my code:
    public int pathLength(TreeNode t, String name, int level)
         if(t==null)
         return 0;
    else if((name.equals(t.getValue())&&(t.getLeft()==null||t.getRight()==null)))
         return level;
         return max(pathLength(t.getLeft(),name,level+1),pathLength(t.getRight(),name,level+1));
    max is a method that returns the larger of two integers (x,y)
    next I have to write method rootPath with parameter (TreeNode) that returns the longest path from the root of the tree to a node containing the same as root.........this method I'm not even close on but I would have thought that all I needed to do for code was
         public int rootPath(TreeNode t)
              return pathLength(t,(String)t.getValue(),1);
    so that it would go from t to another node with t's value.........maybe its because pathLength doesn't work

    and also another part of my program that i'm having trouble with is a different tree which has letters as leaves and null's as parents etc. To get to a letter u follow a code of 1's and 0's so 1110 would be left left left right and u'd get a letter.....i wrote the code that i'll get a code and i can find the letter but now i hafta make it go opposite so i type a letter and it gives the code
    they provided me with the main code
    public String wordToBits(String word)
    String result="";
    for(int k=0; k<word.length(); k++)
    result+=wordToBitsHelper(word.substring(k,k+1),myRoot,"""");
    return result;
    i hafta write method private String wordToBitsHelper(String s, Treenode t, String pathSoFar)
    and im really lost

  • Help with simple programming

    Hello everyone.
    First time posting, i hope someone would be able to help me out. There are 5 classes that i have to do, but i only need help with one of them. I've been stuck on this one pretty long and can't continue without it.
    Instructions:
    •     Has boolean data member face, either HEADS or TAILS.
    •     Has a Random data member flipper which is instantiated in the constructor.
    •     Class constructor has no parameters and randomly chooses the result HEADS or TAILS. (See method flip())
    •     Method getFace() returns the face showing on the coin.
    •     void method flip() randomly selects HEADS or TAILS.
    package coinflip;
    import java.util.Random;
    * @author Blank
    public class Coin {
        boolean face = false;
        int flip_coin;
        Random flipper = new Random();
        int getFace() {
            return flip_coin;
          Coin() {
            if (flip_coin == 0) {
                face = true;
            } else {
                face = false;
        public void flip() {
            flip_coin = flipper.nextInt(2);
    }i really don't know why the random isn't working. I hope someone would be able to find my errors and instruct me on how to fix them. I would be able to continue the rest of the classes as soon as i got this figured out.
    Oh and can someone teach me how to import this class into a main one? So i can test it out. This is what i have for it.public class Main {
         * @param args the command line arguments
        public static void main(String[] args) {
         Coin flipCoin = new Coin();
         for(int i=0;i<6;i++){
         System.out.println(flipCoin.getFace());
    }Many Thanks!

    Constructors are only executed once. What im confused about is:
    • Class constructor has no parameters and randomly chooses the result HEADS or TAILS. (See method flip())
    I thought i would flip() into the constructor. Mind helping me out on the whole class because it seems i am clueless about this whole class.
    Edit:
    public class Coin {
        boolean face = false;
        int flip_coin;
        Random flipper = new Random();
        int getFace() {
            flip();
            return flip_coin;
        Coin() {
           //flip();
        public void flip() {
            flip_coin = flipper.nextInt(2);
    }K i reread what you wrote about the constructor and method. So i placed flip() method in getFace(); because its being called in the main(it gives me random numbers). The problem now is following the directions.
    I just dont understand this description. • Class constructor has no parameters and randomly chooses the result HEADS or TAILS. (See method flip())
    What do you think it means.

  • Help needed with basic program

    I am working on an assignment for my java class, and I am stuck. This is the 1st programming class that i have taken and am a little confused. I am supposed to write a program that inputs 5 numbers and determines and prints the number of negative numbers, positive numbers, and zeros that were inputed. I have gone about this a few different ways so far... but I'm not really sure what to do...
    This is what I have so far on my latest attempt, which I think might be completely wrong..... HELP!!!
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class test
         public static void main (String[] args)
         Scanner input = new Scanner (System.in);
         int integer
         int negative = 0;
         int positive = 0;
         int zero = 0;
         int studentCounter = 1;
         while (studentCounter <=5)
         System.out.print("Please enter an integer:");
         integer = input.nextInt();
         if (integer == 0
              zero = zero +1
    I also tried something similar using :
         int num1; //first number input     
         int num2; //second number input
         int num3; //third number input
         int num4; //forth number input

    System.out.print ("Enter first integer:"); //prompts for input
         num1 = input.nextInt();
         System.out.print ("Enter second integer:"); //prompts for input
         num2 = input.nextInt();
         System.out.print ("Enter third integer:"); //prompts for input
         num3 = input.nextInt();
         System.out.print ("Enter forth integer:"); //prompts for input
         num4 = input.nextInt();
         System.out.print ("Enter fifth integer:"); //prompts for input
         num5 = input.nextInt();
    but i didn't know what to do next.....

    if (integer == 0
              zero = zero +1
    This looks more or less correct so far. Not ideal, but aside from a missing ) and the fact that you trailed off without finishing, it looks like you're on track.
    Start with this, and post details about what specific problems you're having.
    When you post code, please use[code] and [/code] tags as described in Formatting tips on the message entry page. It makes it much easier to read.
