I was trying to do the assignments in the cattle drive.
The question is
"Write a program that will read in a number from 0 to 99 and spell out that number. The program must also report any values that are out of range.
In other words, I want to type
java Say 22
and see
twenty-two"
How would i go about writing this program.
please give some guidelines

I'm in the middle of this assignment myself. I think I'm getting too bogged down (I'm going for the extra, extra credit) but I do have some suggestions for you if you're just getting started:
Think in terms of "speech". Remember Paul's example, "nine hundred ninety-nine billion, nine hundred ninety-nine million...". I don't want to go too far in the forum so feel free to email me personally if you would like.

I would suggest you not to take tips from others and try to solve the assignment on your own. Initially, it might take some time but then programming profession is all about hard work and perseverence.

Thank for your suggests. I actually thought about it and did come up with a solution.
Milind Kulkarni, I agree with you advice. It took some time, but I did come up with a solution.
