This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Here's the problem. I need to cutoff any text to the right of and including the following words: "1CFP", "CFP", "1TNK", "TNK", "1AL1", "Al1", "1ATC", "ATC", "1WBL", "WBL", "1SHP", "SHP". (See full text below.) The constraint is that I cannot use methods or packages from Java 1.4, just 1.3. This means no regex and no strObj.split(param). (I used the latter successfully to cutoff the text, but then found out that it had to be compatible with version 1.3). I've tried a few approaches with no success. I must admit, my problem is with the logic. So I'm hoping that someone could give me some pointers. I'd really appreciate it.
