Trying to figure out why code wont work. Its gets 2 errors for
String newS1 = s1.sort;
String newS2 = s2.sort;
I dont know how know whats wrong

public class anagram {
  public static void main(String args[]) {
   
    java.util.Scanner input = new java.util.Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Enter the first string: ");
    String first = input.nextLine();

    System.out.print("Enter the second string: ");
    String second = input.nextLine();
    System.out.println(
      first + " and " + second + " is " +
      (isAnagram(first, second) ? "anagram." : "not anagram."));
  }

  public static boolean isAnagram(String s1, String s2) {
      String newS1 = s1.sort;
      String newS2 = s2.sort;
    
    if (newS1.length() != newS2.length()) return false;

    for (int i = 0; i < newS1.length(); i++) {
      if (newS1.charAt(i) != newS2.charAt(i))
        return false;
    }

    return true;
  }
}

Does the Strings s1,s2 have an attribute named: sort ?
You can not just imagine methods and attributes and call them. The String object doesn't have such thing:

s1.[B]sort[/B];

so your saying I need to make a method sort

No I am saying the String class doesn't have such an attribute or method. Whether you need to create one or not it is up to you.
