I just found this site and it looks really cool. I'm looking forward to being a member. I'm 31 and interested in learning more about Java. I have a basic understanding, but that's about it. I took a course two years ago that used Alice in Action with Java where the fundamentals where introduced, but that is the thing, it was just the basics. I think it is great when people can post questions and also help others at the same time. For example, last night when I discovered DaniWeb I was in the middle of a Google search for what a command-line argument is. Sure enough I found the answer in this forum. By the way, if anybody wants to know, a command-line argument is a argument that you enter in the command prompt. For instance, it may look like this C:\java YourClassHere 23
The number 23 is the argument. Anyways, I was really happy to find the answer because I was studying some code and couldn't figure out how to get the example program I was playing with to work. It compiled, but when I ran it nothing happened which really had me stumped. What I failed to realize was that particular program only accepted command-line arguments.
