Just a quick question I'd like to ask. Is there a mark for byte and short variables like F for float and D for double?

No, for the integral types there is only L (or l) for long.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

I'm sorry about the tedious question I asked. I just wondered, when defining a size for an array, it might be quicker to just write

int ary[] = new int[3B]; //B for byte

instead of

byte b = 3;
int ary[] = new int[b];

But anyway the byte number will be converted to int, so I'm talking gibberish, once again sorry.

Thanks for your reply anyways.
