Does the nitpicker for 4a get the attempt for 4b?

You are sending to ? That is where I have sent all of my assignments.

It will go to the right person. Or I think, a nitpicker will get it from the 'inbox' queue. As it turns out, Marilyn has done all of my assignments, you may get a different nitpicker.

OK, Thanks!

I've just managed the Say-4b to my own quality standards. I'll just send it in to nitpcik[at]javaranch[dot]com.

But if 4b is just part of the "4" assignment, it could go to the same nitpicker as picked 4a, couldn't it?

Well Pauline has been picking on me a few times ...

It should go to nitpick. Java-4a and Java-4b are considered as separate assignments these days.

Gee Stuart, why do you ask? Are you hoping to be able to re-use some code, or slip something past your nitpicker?

re-using code, that's ugly: yukyukyuk

Who would want to do that then?

I've sent Marilyn my 4b attempt, just received it back and it didn't seem to be thaaaaat bad. But I must admit that I nearly gave up on it. It's really a hard ride that Say-4b, isn't it.

I agree. Here's the link:
