Java: How to put a String into a Char array

The program will receive the following input of characters (Cards) for a Poker program:

2c 3s 6d 7s 8h Kh Jd 4d Jc Kc Qc Tc 9c Jh 9s 9h 9d Qs Ks Js

I need to store that in an array, and then need to parse the array one at a time to store each Card as an object. I was thinking of creating a while loop to run throgh the array one character at a time.

The thing is, I first need to store that input string into the array. My question is how.

The attached code is what I have so far:

import java.util.*;

public class DriverPoker 
{
   public static void main(String args[]) 
      {
	Scanner card_input = new Scanner(System.in);
		
	char [] stringCardsArray = new char[60];
	stringCardsArray = card_input.nextLine();

Hi,

To parse and fill an array you could do:

        Scanner card_input = new Scanner("2c 3s 6d 7s 8h Kh Jd 4d Jc Kc Qc Tc 9c Jh 9s 9h 9d Qs Ks Js");
               
        char[][] cards = new char ["2c 3s 6d 7s 8h Kh Jd 4d Jc Kc Qc Tc 9c Jh 9s 9h 9d Qs Ks Js".length() / 3 + 1][2];
        int i = 0;
        while (card_input.hasNext()) {
            cards[i++] = card_input.next().toCharArray();
        }
