okay so we have group program and my job was to make it only fool proof which I've done most of it and now my group wants me modify/change the program that we talked about and they chose me to do it even though I Said no and I can't..a little help would very much appreciated.

I want to change the program and output should be like this:


How many Jail Room will be created? 2

How many Inmates per room? 2

JailRoom 1:

Inmate 1:

DetaineeNo:

Name:

Case:

sentence:

Inmate 2:

DetaineeNo:

Name:

Case:

sentence

JailRoom 2:

Inmate 1:

DetaineeNo:

Name

Case

sentence

status

Inmate 2:

DetaineeNo:

Name:

Case:

sentence:

}// end of JailIntern class

and there's an empty text file that is together with the 2 programs.

Edited 4 Years Ago by ~s.o.s~: Added code tags, please learn to use them. Also, removed personal information.

I want to change the program and output should be like this:

What does the current output look like?
What is the difference between what the program does now and what you want it to look like? Please be very specific in describing the differences.

the output should be like this


How many jail interns will be stored?

For Jail intern 1:

Enter the detainee number:

Enter the name:

Enter the room number:

Enter the case:

Enter the sentence:

Enter the status([R]eleased/[D]etained):

For Jail intern 2:

Enter the detainee number:

Enter the name:

Enter the room number:

Enter the case:

Enter the sentence:

Enter the status([R]eleased/[D]etained):

sorry the main class on top was the program I edited here's the original one:

the difference is instead of making an array of jail interns, I want it to change of making it an array of jail rooms and each array should ask about how many inmates per jail room and their corresponding information just like in the program and the output I did on my first of my post..
Thank you!
