I'm getting an error of "Incompatible type for=. Can't convert char[] to char."  I would like to pass a int value to getCard and return a char type.  Is this possible? And how do I do it?


import java.io.*;
 
public class Game {
   
public char getCard(int a[])
    {  
      char face [];               // declare reference to an array
      face= new char[52];   // dynamically allocate array    
     
      String[] name={"Ace of Diamonds"}  ;
      if (a[0]==1)
           {
         face[0]=name[0].toCharArray(); // Create the array from the string
         return face;
           }
           }
   public void init (
   
    )
    throws IOException
    {
     
     
       int card[];                // declare reference to an array
       card=  new int [1];   // dynamically allocate array
     
       int name[];                // declare reference to an array
       name=  new int [52];  // dynamically allocate array            
       int i =0;            
   
  InputStreamReader isr= new InputStreamReader(System.in);
     System.out.print("Would you like to play a Game? (Y or N)");
     BufferedReader in= new BufferedReader(isr);
     while(true) {
     String input= in.readLine();      // System.out.println("Echo:" + input);
      if (input.equals("Y"))
         do {
                 if (i==0) {
                     card[0]=1;    
                     getCard(card);
                           }
                           } while  ( i < card.length);
      if (input.equals("x"))
           break;
                  }   //while ending
               } // main ending
            }  // class ending

Is this what do you want ??.

public static char[] getCard(int a[])
{    
char face [];// declare reference to an array
face= new char[52];// dynamically allocate array    
String name="Ace of Diamonds";
if (a[0]==1)
{
face=name.toCharArray(); // Create the array from the string
}
return face;
}

init()
{
int a[] = new int[4];
a[0] = 1;
char []b = getCard(a);
}
