I have a string (contents) wich is a concatation of numbers (129012002150...) and I use every group of 3 to load a BigInteger array with them:

BigInteger[] B_array;
Int i;

i = 0;
for (int x=0; x < contents.length()-3; x+=3)
{
B_array[i] = BigInteger.valueOf(contents.substring(x,x+3)));
i = i +1;
}

and it doesn't work. I want to have in my B_array something like:
129
12
2
150

BigInteger.valueOf() doesn't take a String

Try

B_array[i] = new BigInteger(contents.substring(x,x+3));

This works:

        String contents = "129012002150";
        BigInteger[] B_array = new BigInteger[contents.length()/3];      // <<<<< have to new these ones
        int i = 0;
        for (int x=0; x <= contents.length()-3; x+=3) {                        // x <= instead of x <
            B_array[i] = new BigInteger(contents.substring(x,x+3));
            i++;
        }

Add

        for (int  j=0; j<B_array.length; j++)
            System.out.println( ((BigInteger)B_array[j]).floatValue());

       Integer i = new Integer(2000);
        BigInteger b = new BigInteger("" + i);

Or

       BigInteger b = BigInteger.valueOf(i.intValue());

I tried that and got this error:

C:\Second\second.java:167: int cannot be dereferenced
p_calc[indic] = BigInteger.valueOf(p_found.intValue());                                          
Were i have at the start:

private static BigInteger[] p_calc = new BigInteger[100];

This worked:

p_calc[indic] = new BigInteger("" + p_found);

>> int cannot be dereferenced

if p_found is an int then that should have been
      p_calc[indic] = BigInteger.valueOf(p_found);

The one you wrote would work id p_found was an Integer

Ahh hopefully the last one ... :-)

Trying to convert a String to a Char. I know exactly my Strings are all between 0 and 255. So im sure they will have each of them a Char representation.

Do you mean a String that contains from "0" to "255" ?
>> String to Char
You mean Character of char?

      String s = "123";
      char c = (char) Integer.parseInt(s);
