I am new to java but not new to programming. I just wanted to know
like in C/C++ can we see the list of built-in functions in java.???
ie. Like in C/C++ if we go to string.h, we can see all the built-in functions (related to strings) with their syntax and description.
Ooops.! I forgot to tell..... i have jdk1.3.1
Thanks in advance

You should have a src zip in your jdk install directory, unpack that and you'll see all...
Also, you can download the documentation package from Sun and get the API docs in html format.
