I've been looking over the Style Guide section 2.2 - Spacing. I cannot locate the problem with spacing in my reviewed code below. Please help. Thanks.
String theName = ( args[0] + " " );
int printsPerLine = 79 / ( theName.length() );
int totalFullLines = 100 / printsPerLine;
spacing around all identifiers.
int lastLinePrints = 100 % printsPerLine;
spacing here also.

Hey Mike,
I still get that response every so often.
spacing around all identifiers means before and After the identifiers.
For example: x = y + z ;

The only hint I can give is that you only have a "quasi" (partial...think half...) problem, and it the same on each statement line.

Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel

Okay, I see it now. That will be a hard one to adjust to.
Thanks for the hints!

int totalFullLines = 100 / printsPerLine;
int totalFullLines = 100 / printsPerLine"here a space too! ;-) ";
Try to find an editor or IDE which does this kind of stuff
Until now I have a 95% solution of this kind of problem by
using the IDE of Together ( University licence ) where I can
manage the style of beautifying.
