What do you mean by increasing the value of StringBuffer? Did you mean converting from A to B, C to D, and so on? In that case, how if you increase the 'char' value of each letter in the string.




Cheers,

Devaka.

If your stringBuffer contained "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya.", what would you increment this to?

Further, I don't think this is a well defined problem, especially since different character sets may not have letters in the same order, or consecutive letters stored as consecutive integers. And what would you increment a 'z' to?

Can you define the problem better? Tell us exactly what you want - or if this is a homework assignment, give us the EXACT and COMPLETE text of it, and we can perhaps steer you better.
