Can somebody point me to where I can learn more about vectors and how to go about filling them?

Moved to Java in General - no Vectors in these assignments

Well, there's the Java's API for java.util.Vector.
To fill a vector, you'll want to use java.util.Vector's add() method. To retrieve the nth element of a vector, you'll want to use the elementAt() method, which returns a java.lang.Object, so if you use elementAt(), you'll probably have to cast to what you need.
Here's a program I created for another JavaRancher some time back; it shows how to fill and retrieve elements from a vector:

This example may be overkill for your question, but it shows the use of a vector in action.
Good luck,
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
