Hello every one!

I am new to the java programming language and I need a solution for the below exercise.

Q-Write a program to generate a random sequence of capital letters that does not include vowels?

Thanks in advance,

since this sounds like a assignment i give you some hints instead of the full solution:

- Math.random() produces a random number between 0 and 1. You can multiply/round/cast this number to get a valid index to an array
- You could create an char[] with all the required letters (something like {'B', 'C'})

Another first post! Welcome aboard!

Pascal's answer is typical in the beginner forum ... just enough hints to get you going, but not complete solutions. Please give it a try and feel free to post code as you make progress or run into trouble.

If you're not familiar with the JavaDoc, this is a great resource. Bookmark it today:

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
