Hi,

This is probably an incredibly simple question, but when I output the results of a sort method on an array list of 10,000 integers, it currently outputs the result as one long list of the 10,000 numbers on one line. They are sorted correctly, but the output of the sort is not suitable for easy presentation.

I currently can't see why this would happen.

Any ideas please!!!

My code is as follows:



Any help or advice appreciated!!

You can use "\n" to output a new line character. So using:

in your loop (in the toString() method) will give you what you are trying to do.
