I have written a simple java program which does not appear to work, can anybody help...

class cat {
  public static void main(String args[])
     {
     char a,b;
     int d,e;
     d =(int)(Math.random()*3+65);
     e =(int)(Math.random()*3+65);
     a=(char)(d);
     b=(char)(e);
     System.out.println(a);
     System.out.println(b);
     if ((a=='c') && (b=='a'))
     System.out.println("OK");
     else
     System.out.println("NOT OK");
     }
  }

This generates two random characters and then prints a message accordingly, however if the characters are 'c' and 'a' then the display does not show the 'OK' message as expected.

Any suggestions.

Your code generates upper case letters, but you are testing for lower case letters.

Instead of:

if ((a=='c') && (b=='a'))

you need:

if ((a=='C') && (b=='A'))
