hello , i am having problem with System.arraycopy() method i am getting NullPointerExceptions with it. What i want to do is just to copy a few elements from one array to another so this method seems convinient for me. I know i can do this by hand myself but if it's there for me why not use it.
Here is what i tried and failed.

String copy[] = new String[#];
