I need help with fixing up  the code that test the method in the main method.
And finding  the index first  occurance of the smallest index. My program  finds the index of the smallest value in the entire array.


I am writing a program that takes the smallestindex that takes the parameters, a int array and it size  and returns the index of the first ocuurene of the smallest value.
{
double[] alpha = new double[50];
                 System.out.println(smallestindex(alpha));
      {
           public static int smallestIndex(int  alpha[])
			int index = 0;
			int  smallest;
			smallest  = data[0];
			for(i =0; i < data.lenght(); i++)
			if(smallest < data[i])
			{
			smallest = data[i];
			index = i;
			}
			return index;

That's looking ok, apart from the array being empty as shown. What's the problem?

>                         for(i =0; i < data.lenght(); i++)

should be:

                        for(i =0; i < data.length; i++)

> double[] alpha = new double[50];

you also don't initialize your array

double[] alpha = new double[] { 1.2, 4.5, 1.7, 9.0, -3.4, 5.6};

or you could use a loop

System.out.println(smallestindex(alpha));
      {
           public static int smallestIndex(int  alpha[])

try this:

public class Smallest {

      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            int[] alpha = new int[] { 1, 4, 1, 9, -3, 5};
            System.out.println(smallestIndex(alpha));
      }

      public static int smallestIndex(int[] data) {
            int index = 0;
            int smallest;
            smallest = data[0];
            for (int i = 0; i < data.length; i++)
                  if (smallest < data[i]) {
                        smallest = data[i];
                        index = i;
                  }
            return index;
      }

}
