Kabs The command line arguments supplied to a program are sent to the main method as an array of Strings. So, if you entered java class_name 25 then the variable args would hold the String "25". I dont know of any standard way to convert the "25" to the words "twenty-five". Someone else may know of a package out there that does this or you may have to write it yourself. hope that helps
