I am trying to make a Fibonacci sequence program to display up to the nth term(only positive numbers).

For some reason it doesn't seem to work.

import java.util.Scanner;

/**

public class Fabonnacci {

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Enter the trem of the fabonacci sequence:  ");
        Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
        int term = input.nextInt();
        int x =0;
        int y =0;
        
        int output =0;
        int first3[] = new int[4];
        first3[0]=0;
        first3[1]=1;
        first3[2]=1;
        first3[3]=2;
        
        for(int i = 0;i<=term;i++){
            
            if(term<=3){
                output=first3[term];
                System.out.print(first3[term]);
                
            }else{
                
               
                if(i==0){
                     System.out.print("0,1,1,2");
                    x=1;
                    y=2;
                    System.out.print("," + (x+y));
                }else if(x>y){
                    y+=x;
                    System.out.print(","+ y);
                    
                }else if(y>x){
                    x+=y;
                    System.out.print(","+ y);
                }
                    
                }
            
                
            
}
        
        
        }
    }

NOTE - this is not a school project. I am teaching myself java.

"it doesn't seem to work" gives us nothing to go on. Exactly what error messages do you get, or exactly how does the output differ from the expected output? Be as precise as possible.

So why dont you try to google it, I know at least 5 open source projects that have Fibonacci as part of them

Googling open source code is certainly a good way to find algorithms, examples, and techniques, but IMHO when you're learning there's no substitute for starting with a blank page and writing, testing, and debugging some code of your own.
