you caqn adapt the following to read user input into a file

http://www.objects.com.au/java/qa/908090699.html

just replace the file stream with stdin
and change the test condition for example to look for an empty line

the follwoing can be used to convert string to an int

let me know if u have any questions :)

this is what i got so far, but after i enter how many numbers i want to enter, it just enters all 0's.  for example, if i say that i want to input 5 numbers, it will automatically input 5 zeros and put them in order as the output, how do i fix it?
``````class SortArray
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
int n = in.nextInt();
int arr1[] = new int[n];

int entry[] = new int[x];

for(int i = 0; i < entry.length; i++)
{
entry[i] = Integer.parseInt(strEntry);
System.out.println();
}

for (int i=0;i<arr1.length;i++)
System.out.println(arr1[i]);
for(int i=0;i<(arr1.length-1);i++)
{
for (int j=i+1;j<arr1.length;j++)
{
if(arr1[i]>arr1[j])
{
int x,y;
x=arr1[i];
y=arr1[j];
arr1[i] = y;
arr1[j] = x;
}
}
}

System.out.println("Array after sorting in ascending order");
System.out.println();
for (int i=0;i<arr1.length;i++)
System.out.println(arr1[i]);

}
}

>>          for(int i = 0; i < entry.length; i++)
{

}

change to

for(int i = 0; i < arr1.length; i++)
{
arr1[i] = Integer.parseInt(strEntry);
System.out.println();
}

and you don't need entry array at all unless you want to have the user entry for some purpose!

even if you want to have, you have to make a copy...

this is what i have so far, but i still cant figure out how to get the user to input their own numbers, who can help?
``````import java.util.Scanner;
import java.io.*;

class sam
{
public static void main(String args[])
{

Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
int n = in.nextInt();
int arr1[] = new int[n];

int entry[] = new int[n];

for (int i=0;i<arr1.length;i++)
System.out.println(arr1[i]);

for(int i=0;i<(arr1.length-1);i++)
{
for (int j=i+1;j<arr1.length;j++)
{
if(arr1[i]>arr1[j])
{
int x,y;
x=arr1[i];
y=arr1[j];
arr1[i] = y;
arr1[j] = x;
}
}
}

System.out.println("Array after sorting in ascending order");
System.out.println();
for (int i=0;i<arr1.length;i++) System.out.println(arr1[i]);

}
}

use something like:

for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
{
}

You don't need a Scanner *and* a BufferedReader. You can get the numbers in a separate method:

``````    static int[] getNumbers() {
Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
int i = 0;
int[] numbers = new int[256];
System.out.print("Enter number (q to quit): ");
while (s.hasNextInt()) {
System.out.print("Enter number (q to quit): ");
numbers[i++] = s.nextInt();
}
int[] truncated = new int[i];
System.arraycopy(numbers, 0, truncated, 0, i);
return truncated;
}
``````

How do I change this program so that it sorts numbers that the user inputs from the command line instead of the numbers that I have specified? Here is what I have.

``````public class BubbleSort{
public static void main(String[] args)
{

for (String str: args) {
System.out.println(str);
}

int i;
int array[] = {5, 10, 297, 3, 18, 4, 5};

for(i = 0; i < array.length; i++)
System.out.print( array[i]+"  ");
System.out.println();
bubbleSort(array, array.length);

for(i = 0; i < array.length; i++)
System.out.print(array[i]+"  ");
System.out.println();
}

public static void bubbleSort( int a[], int n ){
int i, j,t=0;
for(i = 0; i < n; i++){

for(j = 1; j < (n-i); j++){
if(a[j-1] > a[j]){
t = a[j-1];
a[j-1]=a[j];
a[j]=t;
}
}
}
}
}
``````
