hi.
i have not been able to understand the var-args syntax and in what way should the var arg be the last of a method's argument.

you can declare

public void static main(String... a){

}
thats means you can pass variable number of Strings each time you call main.
Is that clear.

like
java SampleProgram one two three
java SampleProgram write until you satisfy
