How to pass variable values between successive for loops?

I have two successive for loops and i need to pass one of the variables' value to an instance inside the other for loop.

for(int x=0; x< sentence.length(); x++) {

int i;
if (!Character.isWhitespace(sentence.charAt(x)))
i = x ;
break;

}

for (int i ; i < sentence.length(); i++) {

if (Character.isWhitespace(sentence.charAt(i)))
if (!Character.isWhitespace(sentence.charAt(i + 1)))

}

This is just a part of my program and my purpose is assigning the value of x (from the fĂ­rst for loop) to i variable(from the second for loop) so that i wont start from 0 but from the value of x(before breaking the first for loop)...Looking forward to your replies...Thank you so much in advance!!!

You could either declare your i variable outside of your first for loop or you could put your second for loop inside the if statement in your first for loop

You may want to search around on the term 'variable scope'. Basically, method variables can (and do) go 'out of scope' when you hit the closing brace of the block where they are defined. So:




There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
