I have to make a program that allows two players to play tictactoe. The game board has to be done using ASCII, which I've already done. However, since it's not an array with indexes, how do I access each place on the board?..for example if the player wants to place an X on row 3, column 2...?
It's much better to use an array of an enum type. Then you can very simply change the board, and if you need ASCII you can let the TicTacToe class convert the board to a String in its toString() method.
