Finally I have worked it out. I understand how this loop work now.

...4...3...2....4...3...2....4...3...2
------------------------------------------
x..6...12..18...24..30..36...42..48..56
------------------------------------------
y..26..24..22...18..16..14...10..8...6

Thank you.

Can you explain the step by step of working table or calculation?

like this...for x = x + 3;

________inner_________outer
Loop=__4__3__2__then 1__2__3

x =____6__12_18______18_18_18

y =____28_26_24______22_20_18

My answer are totally wrong that x = 18 and
y = 18. It should be x = 54 and y = 6.

match each candidate with one of the possible outputs

Candidates: --------- Possible output:

x = x + 3; ------------ 45 6

x = x + 6; ------------ 36 6

x = x + 2; ------------ 54 6

x++; ------------------ 60 10

x--; ------------------ 18 6

x = x + 0; ------------ 6 14

----------------------- 12 14

Solution:

x = x + 3; ---------- 54 6

x = x + 6; ---------- 60 10

x = x + 2; ---------- 45 6

x++; ---------------- 36 6

x--; ---------------- 18 6

x = x + 0; ---------- 6 14

---------------------- 12 14

Let me correct this question for you...I copied this exactly same down from Head First Java 2nd edition, chapter five on page 121. I don't know how it work with the loop of 2 for....Can anyone explain how it work please and thank you.

A short Java program is listed below. One block of the program is missing. Your challenge is to match the candidate block of code (on the left), with the output that you'd see if the block were inserted. Not all the lines of output will be used, and some of the lines of output might be used more than once. Draw lines connecting the candidate blocks of code with their matching command-line output.

match each candidate with one of the possible outputs

Candidates: Possible output:

x = x + 3; 45 6

x = x + 6; 36 6

x = x + 2; 54 6

x++; 60 10

x--; 18 6

x = x + 0; 6 14

12 14

Solution:

x = x + 3; ---------- 54 6

x = x + 6; ---------- 60 10

x = x + 2; ---------- 45 6

x++; ---------- 36 6

x--; ---------- 18 6

x = x + 0; ---------- 6 14

12 14

Yeah, I absolutely agree with you! Tut tut. I will, one day! At the moment, I'm on chapter two in the Head First Java book.

Henry

That's right! But on your last point, I don't know what do you mean by isn't kawa bases on Scheme!

Sorry

Kawa is for Linux, I remembered that my tutor installed kawa in my computer which was window98. http://www.gnu.org/software/kawa/index.html

Anyway I won't download it. Look like there is no SDK for mac?

I just remember now that the name of the software is Kawa for Java coding. Last time I used it was 5 years ago at University and I didn't learn the module fully properly. Why it was called Kawa? I must have missed the JDK underline.

So JDK is a software to code then. I'm going to download and install it now on my macbook and window laptop.

Thanks

Of course, there is no special quota for Brits even the special relationship between USA and UK does not help. Never mind.

Thank you for advices and information.

Cheers!

Luke

Yes as a tourist. I have a girlfriend who live in LA and she have a very important job in LA for the next 4 years. Sorry I have no choice to do the freelance work cos I need the British money to survive. I go home every 90 days for a month. If I can't get a work permit so then I cannot be force to marry her! Maybe in 2 years time. I don't know!

Cheers!

Oh boy, do I need to learn another big programming language after Java?

I would like to do the SCJP then SCJD and SCMAD then SCEA, I hope to complete it all by March in 2009.
