This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm trying to find out what ASCII-numbers are equalent to the letters: "c", "o", "m". Perhaps not the easiest way, but I set up this code:
I knew it wouldn't work. Somehow, I need to convert the int to a char, or whatever. Almost like the Integer-thing, but not quite. (And yes, I don't know the exact words or terms for "it". If anyone wants to explain it to me - go ahead.) And by the way. If it would've worked, then I would've counted every printout on the screen until I stumbled upon the desired letters.

Your code is fine as it is, you just need to explicitly cast the int to a char (Since an int is larger than a char, the compiler thinks that you made a mistake. Explicit casts are ways of telling the compiler "I know what I'm doing ... I think )
BTW, the last series of lines will do what you are looking for without having to search the printout.
