How do I use command line arguments from main(String args) as user input in java?
My problem is that I need to make a program for an assignment. It needs to execute in 2 ways.
If no arguments are entered,
Ie. java myprogram
it opens a menu that allows the user to select an option and asks the user to input the parameters for that option.
If arguments are entered,
Ie. java my program A 5 H
It uses 'A' as the option, and '5' and 'H' as the required parameters.
I understand that:
args = A
args = 5
args = H
I'm just unsure how to pass this information to my other methods in addition to having the option for user input via the menu.
Essentially, I can get it to do one or the other, not both. I'm pretty new to java and this is my first assignment. Everything else is working fine, I just can't get this going. I'll post code if need be but since this is a university assignment, I don't really want to get caught "cheating" considering students and teachers probably use/read this forum.
Thanks in advance!
