Can any body help me in this program .
(a)convert the whole String in lower case.
(b)Count the number of words which starts with a vowel.
(c)Retrieve the number of words and store them in an array.)
I wants to retrieve the number of words and store them in an array.
public class Assign1
{
public static void main(String[]args)
{
String s="I would like to be like an amitabachan. Kumar likes Julia Roberts.Pakistan is going to be super power next year.";int count=0;
//convert the whole string in lower case.
//count the number of words which starts with a vowel.
for(int i=0;i<s.length();i++)>
{
ch=Character.toLowerCase(s.charAt(i));
if (ch=='a' | | ch =='e'| | ch =='i'| | ch=='o'| | ch =='u')
count++;
}
System.out.println(s);
System.out.println(count);
System.out.println(s.length());
}
}

Look at the methods in String and see StringTokenizer.

Hi Sadaf
You should take your own brief specification and go through it one step at a time. Some hints:
for
(a) See java.lang.String.toLowerCase()
(b) See java.lang.String.startsWith()
(c) You need to loop through the String and check if each WORD starts with a vowel. Maintain a count of matches. When finished, you need an array of Strings to put matches into, which you have not created. What you are doing at the moment is counting the number of vowels in TOTAL, not the number of words starting with vowels.
Read up on the aforementioned methods of String and have another think about the problem. If you are still stuck, come back to us.
Hope this helps
Michael
