  5. hi, i recently got hold of the classic lunar lander game from the 1980s. I am doing a project for which i am trying to understand the game. I got the game source from this link:http://www.serve.com/wizjd/java/JDLunarLander/JDLunarLander.html. Can someone please tell me how to compile this code and get the game running? I compiled few codes into classes but the rest I am not able to do it. Also I dunno which is the main class from which the game starts. I feel some java sources are missing or its just my imagination :( :(. Please help! Thanks in advance :) cheers Jay

  8. Hi i want to store two separate strings separated by a space in an array and then retrieve the strings using some indexing method and store them in a 2 dimensional array. in this code the dummy is a character array already populated with the 2 strings using the if condition I'm separating the strings from the dummy array. inside the if condition I'm trying to store the first string in the first row of the 2dim array and the second string in the second row. however when i try to print out the string in temp[row], its printing junk values. please help for(j=0;j<ln;j++) { dummy[j]=total.charAt(j); if(dummy[j]==' ') { temp[row][col]='\0'; System.out.println("word: " + temp[row]); row++; col=0; } else { temp[row][col]=total.charAt(j); col++; } }
