Well I have an Assignment that asks this... However, I'm having trouble doing this...

Write a program that asks the user to enter the name of his or her favorite city. Use a string variable to store the input. The program should display the following:
• The number of characters in the city name
• The name of the city in all uppercase letters
• The name of the city in all lowercase letters
• The first character in the name of the city

The phrase "having trouble" seems to indicate that you've started the assignment, and run into a problem that you can't get past. If so, show us what part you have so far, and then let us know what the problem is.


Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter

java.lang.String; one single method can give you the result
The name of the city in all uppercase letters

Again java.lang.String; one single method can give you the result. Remember though that Strings are immutable, so you'll need to use the following structure:

The name of the city in all lowercase letters

The same applies as for upper case.
The first character in the name of the city

Again, java.lang.String; one single method is enough.

Are you sure? Surely you mean to use the Code button? Push the Code button, then copy and paste the code between the two tags in square brackets.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
