Hey guys!
So I just started getting into the programming thing, and I really need help trying to figure out why it's popping up with this error. Really been bugging me. Also I have to figure out how to print this program but been having no luck with that either. So hints and helpful tips or anything to steer me on the right path is appreciated!

Error: error: cannot find symbol
char c = input.charAt(s);
symbol: method charAt(int)
location: variable input of type Scanner
1 error

The Scanner class doesn't have a charAt method
