I have the user input a sentence (example " Hello this is some jello "). I already have that complete by having a method to do this. What the method does is take a user input (.nextLine) then stores the words of the sentence into String words and I use the split function to break up the sentence into individual words. What I want to do is find in a given word, how many characters are in the word (length method without using .length()), then read in a sentence(already created a method to obtain user input then I called it in the main to execute), put each word into an object(Maybe a loop but where? I tried Word words = new Word; Word is the public class and words comes from String words if that is correct, but I get LWord;32c8f6f8), then I can call the function that was created to get the length of the word in the object. Once I know the lengths I want to show the user the words that have the same length. Just looking for a push in the right direction to see if I can come up with anything I apologize if this is confusing and I will clarify it there are any questions. Thanks!
