Hi Folks,

Please note the following program:


It is giving the following output:

S1 Before Append : Hello
S1 After Append : Hello How are you
S1 After S1=S2 : Doing
Final Output in Main Method : Hello How Are you.

Could you please explain me why it is NOT printing "Doing" in the last output (it has been changed to "doing" in the method myBuf() ?
In the statement "s1=s2", if s1 and s2 are local to the method myBuf(),
then why in the statement s1.append("how are you") , s1 is not local to the method myBuff().

I am a bit confused. A good explanation is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks in advance

Best Regards

Suresh
