You might find the classes in the java.util.regex package usefule for your task. Unless of course this is an assignment that requires you to reinvent that particular wheel.
Thanks.. I've learned a lot from the regex package!I came up with a solution.. I changed the .equalsto() with .matches(regex) now I have a different issue.. How can I make my program stop searching as soon as it finds a match? they say i don't need the goto anymore for a really clean coding since "goto" is only used for assembly. here is my new code..
