I have two write two very simple caculations (classes), but I am from the VB Area, so my Java is to say the least..the ****s. I am using JDK 1.1.6, in an MS-DOS environment.  I write my code in notepad then save it as a *.java file, then run javac
I know there is a better way, but for this purpose, I have to do it this way.

Anyway here are my two (simple) questions:

I need to write a little program that computes and prints the squares of the integers from 5 to 15.

Secondly I need write a second little program to calculate the sqaures and cubes of ten consecutive numbers.

Thanks in advance

This looks like homework. We'd be happy to help, but it would
hardly be ethical, or helpful to do it for you. Please attempt a
solution, and ask us about specifics you are having trouble with.

ethical or not, UpAllNite has to learn some way or another. OK, this is the solution to your problems.

First Question.

//main class
public class calcs
      public static void main(String args[])
            calcSquares cs = new calcSquares();
public class calcSquares
      int theNumber;      //declare a variable
      calcSquares() //no arg constructor
      public void dotheCalc()
            System.out.println("Number\tThe Square");
            for(theNumber = 5;theNumber < 16;theNumber++)
                  System.out.println(theNumber + "\t" + theNumber*theNumber);
      }      //method to do the calculation

just run the JVM eg. java calcs and see the answer.

Question 2:
This is a more sophisticated version of Question 1 as it takes in the user input. The program will take in the String Array 'argv' and converts the Strings into an Integer Object. NO handling of primitive data until the calculation part. run it like this:

java SandQ 2 3 4 5 6 ....

it can handle more than 10 inputs.

public class SandQ
      public static void main(String argv[])
            if(argv.length <= 0)
                  System.out.println("SandQ <num1>...<numX>");
                  for(int i=0;i<argv.length ;i++)
                        Integer intVal = new Integer(argv[i]);  //the input is String, so must convert
                        int theInt =intVal.intValue();
                        System.out.println(theInt + "\t\t" + theInt*theInt + "\t\t" + theInt*theInt*theInt);

Do check up your documentation regularly if you want to improve on your Java Programming. READ! READ! READ! Go to a library close to you and borrow some Java Programming Book. The ones by SUN Microsystems are the best.

#1) Not of ethics, I could care less about Java at this point, I am a VB and SQL guy and have been for about 10 years.  

#2) I have contacts at SUN, which is only a couple miles away, and I have been personally been told too hold off on any major developments, because things are too murky, and there are "wars" going on, that most don't even know about.

#3)  All that said and done, answering a question, is hardly being unethical (homework or not), if I had a question like What is 2+2? ...and you told me 4, is that being unethical, I think not.

Anyway thanks for the answer.

W.r.t. #3 from UpAllNite:

Answering a question in general, is not unethical (that's what we're here for).

Answering a specific question on homework is also fine (that's what a teacher or teaching assistant would do).

Answering the question: will you do this homework problem for me? With: yes here you go, most certainly is both unethical and unhelpful.
