can anybody explain this arrrays of arrays, i am getting confused with the nested for loops, and what should i know in arrays of arrays as am preparing for the SCJP class arr { public static void main (String args[]) { int twoD[][] = new int[2][3]; int i, j, k = 0; for(i=0; i<2; i++) for(j=0; j<3; j++) { twoD[i][j] = k; k++; System.out.println(twoD[i][j]); } } } Thank you very much
In this case we have a bi-dimensional array. It is kind of like a matrix 2x3 (2 rows - 3 columns). int twoD[][] = new int[2][3]; The nested for loops are needed in order to access each cell of the matrix. for(int i=0;i<2;i++) will traverse the first and second row. for(int j=0;j<3;j++) will traverse the first, the second and the third column. Each cell is assigned k (incremented at each iteration). The content of the bi-dimensional array after its initialization is:
