Hello all,
I am working on some code to sort different files using different sorting methods. The code is running fine and I am getting correct results from the number of comparisons and operations, but when I call yo output the file, the text is garbled and far from correct. For example, the file "10_Random" contains 20401, 11087, 62176, 70095, 20947, 20098, 90914, 53475, 51251
and 20065. However, the output after running the file for both "sorted" and "unsorted" is "[I@5ab328" gobbleygook. What is the problem here?

This says you're trying to print an array of ints: [I@5ab328.

Array classes don't override toString(), they just inherit it from Object, which prints the class name and the hashCode. You need to either use java.util.Arrays.toString(), or else just iterate over the array and print out the elements one by one.

Ah yes. Thanks, I have been away from Java for a while now and completely forgot about that.
