I have written a method (getArray) that does some stuff.
(I can't send the code as it is Cattle Drive Stuff)
it generates an array.
I can get it to sent the array to the screen using
System.out.println( intData( i ) );
But I do nto seem to be able to get the
array outside the method.
I am sure that I am doing something wrong in trying to
get my genArray() to return my array
that is a matter of not understaning the syntax
well enough.
HELP I feel like I am on the verge of making
a breakthrough if only I could tie my shoes.
;->
=========
public class CattleDrive
{
public static void main( String[] args )
{
String myString = //I get a string from somewhere
myArray[] = genArray( myString );//get the intarray of a string.
}
static int genArray( String s )
{
Magic Java stuff
System.out.println( myArray[ i ] );// this works
}
return myArray[];
}

Ione, in your genArray() you are only returning an int not an array of int's.
You have --> static int genArray( String s )
You should have --> static int[] genArray( String s )

Hope this helps.
