Clarification of Java-1b

Hi,

I don't really understand the assignment.

It says, "Formatting is not necessary" Formatting of what, the program code or the output?

then it says "modify Java-1a so words are never split up" What words? Do you mean the name of the person?


Thanks,

Armando

I believe "no formatting" just means you don't have to justify the text to fit in exactly 80 columns. You're just trying to make sure it doesn't go over 80 columns and therefore split in the middle of a word.

Thanks,

Formatting of the code per the JavaRanch Style Guide is always required.

Yes, in this case, "words" = the name of the person
