hi, i have a string and an array of character.

String = "solve"
Array = {r,e,s,o,l,v,e}

how i can compare the string with the array to know that the string is in the array?

thank you. :roll:

I suggest that you have a look at the charAt method in java.lang.String class, and the String constructor that takes a character array as input.

You can create a new String object with char[] in its constructor and then you can use
public int compareTo(String anotherString)
