Well I got the whole substring thing working.. thanks a lot. Now I've gotta struggle with the "stdin.readline()" which doesn't wanna work for some odd reason :P I imported the java.io.* i created a new BufferedReader ... and it just doesn't wanna work.
Are there any other ways of getting input from a user. In c++ it was just CIN and that WAS SOOOO MUCH EASIER than screwing around with all of these buffered readers :P
