Hi, the Ranch works really well when you can post a short chunk of code that almost works. We like to give good hints but make you do all the real work.
Pick one tiny bit of your problem and see what you can do with it. Maybe start with reading user input from the console. Read the JavaDoc on System and its "in" field. That's the console input. Study up on BufferedReader, too, so you can read a line at a time. When all that seems too confusing, Google for examples. Have fun!
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
