Hi there from the first posting of a new person.I'm making a program that outputs a bunch of ASCII code.After some major help (since I have no prior experience with Java) there is a step I particulary don't know how to tackle.

It's saying that each group of small columns will be 8 chars wide and properly aligned for values less than 6.What does that mean when you got something like this?.



If anyone has more questions about this I'll gladly reply because besides documentation I'm almost done.

Welcome to the Ranch
Please indent your code correctly; you appear to have an import followed immediately by the name of the class. You should have two new lines inbetween.
I am not quite sure what you are looking for, but it is probably a job for formatting, which you can read about in the Java Tutorials, here and here.
 
The only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you. Or this tiny ad:
