Hi i know to take a series of string from command line??


i know to take it with args[0],args[1] but how to take it has a whole??

i mean if i enter "I AM LEARNING JAVA" in the command line

i want to count the number of times "I" repeats in the sentence
so i can't take args[0],args[1]... so how do i take this full sentence as a single thing in my program?

By enclosing it in double quotes, like this:

Then it'll all end up in args[0] - without the quotes.

What else are you looking for that this very simple way of doing things doesn't accomplish?

Yes, you can; Rob has already told you how to iterate through the array with a for loop.
