llo all,* im trying to build a simple software to modify words. from undesirable content from the internet for example : f*cking into sexual intercourse or something like that im very new into programming so any ideas would help me a lot. thanks

Well... start with which language you're using, do you have a database, or a list of words? Do you.... wait...

In this case... I'd say try this in your address bar:
"http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=[ Write the programming language here ]+string+replace"

Edited 4 Years Ago by zw_jvdijk83: little better to read

mm i have a small dictionary with the words im trying to replace... like i said before for example fucking with sexual intercourse or cock with penis etc or i was thinking about instead of cock i can have c*ck but i dont know the code i need to use to have this output. i was thinking i could use java --> eclipse.

e a database, or a list of words

Well for simple replacements you can maintain a hash table with keys are words to be replaced.
But for complex string systems you could research into semantic web and queries.

ah ok :) java

If you have a Collection<String>, you can use a for loop, and to keep it simple, I'll just change all A,I,E,U,O,Y to a * when the word is not ok:

public String changeBadWords(String string, Collection<String> badWords) {
    for (String badWord : badWords) {
        string = changeBadWord(string, badWord);
    }
    return string;
}
private String changeBadWord(String sentence, String badWord) {
    return sentence.replace(badWord, censor(badWord));
}
private String censor(String badWord) {
    for (String vowel : Arrays.asList("A", "E", "U", "O", "I", "Y")) {
        badWord = badWord.replace(vowel, "*");
    }
    return badWord;
}

Note to others: it can be neater, but I made extra lines as he stated he was a beginner

Eclipse is you IDE ("integrated development environment", you can choose others too, but Eclipse is just fine)

hanks for the replies. it is not working though. dont know what im doing wrong. i'll just tell you briefly what my assignment is about. need to find sexually explicit content from sex stories, urban dictionaries etc and take the undesirable words or phrases and modify them. for example there are 2 ways of modyfing them with euphemisms or replace the vowel with an asterisk.
so my job is to develop a software that does that.
im new in this and tried to look up tutorials on youtube but EVERYTHING is soo confusing. probably thats why there are few girls in this field :P

Thanks,
Clara

@zw_jvdijk83 wrong thread.
