hi

i have an array of strings and i want to split the string in each index and place it in a two dimensional array

strings are split using the .split("delimeter"); method

i would just like to know what the equivalent method for that is

thanks

There is no method; you need to write a loop.

The equivalent for what ?
There is a split() method in the String class.

how then do you split the values inside the array?
like for example in array[0], i have the String "1,D1254H35,x,MS,FOL"
and i want to split those separated by a comma it into diffent entries?

split() returns a array of strings (String[])

in two dimensional arrays,can i populate the rows first, and then the columns much later? how is that done?

thanks a lot.
i'll try that one. i'll try to understand it first though

is that how a twodimensional array is populated?
coz i want to populate the 5 rows first, and after 5 values are put in, i then want to populate the inner array. the sizes are constant by the way.
i mean the twod array is

String[][] twoD = new String[20][10];

thanks

to populate the twoD array, this is what i did and it doesn't work
what is wrong with what i'm doing?

String [ ][ ] entryfields = new String[entlen][10];
for(int g=0; g<entlen; g++)
{
entryfields[g][0] = entry[g];
out.print(entryfields[g][0]);
}
