Don't just blindly supply answers: the point is to help people learn, and learn how to learn, not do their work for them. If the OP was in a class, for example, you just did their homework for them.

(Btw, I knew someone named January once. And Carrot. One never knows...)

use this to get the list index for your given input.

int c= l.indexOf(a);

List has an indexOf() method?

Whoops, I was looking at Collection--never mind.

Still shouldn't blindly provide answers, though: provide resources, assist the poster's thought process, etc. Handing them solutions on a plate serves no one.

Okay... the side discussion topic (about giving out answers) has been split from this topic...

http://www.coderanch.com/t/450157/Ranch-Office/with-finding-index-string


This topic can now return to talking about the original subject.
