Im trying to get the output to read on one line such as this:
Reference String 1 2 3 where 1,2,3 is the number the user enters.
Instead the output is as such:
1 2 3 Reference String.

How can I improve this to read correctly?

import java.util.Scanner;

public class test {

    public static void main(String[] args)
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.println("Please enter length of string "); 
    int str_len=input.nextInt();
    System.out.println("Please enter reference string ");
    int[] count = new int[str_len];
    //int str =input.nextInt();
       int i;
    for ( i=0; i<=str_len-1;i++)
    count[i] = input.nextInt();
    System.out.print( " " + count[i]);
    }//ends for
    System.out.print("Reference string is ");
    }//ends class

Thank you but when I do that, it read as such:
Please enter reference string
Reference string is 1 2 3.

It should be able to prompt user for reference string.
1.Please enter reference string
Then, user should be able to enter reference string
1 2 3
Next, should be able to print Reference string with numbers entered by users
Reference string is 1 2 3

Anymore suggestions?


Hmm... Wait... Do you mean the program will keep asking for reference string, and then output the reference string with number? Is it something similar to below example?

Output example...

>java YourProgramName
 Please enter reference string: _
 // then user enter My First String Ever
 // then the output would be...

When I run mines, there is no space between so it looks as such
Please enter reference string
Reference string is
1 2 3 4 5
The code hasn't done anything here yet. This is just what has been entered by user.

Once its done, here is the output:
Please enter length of string
Please enter reference string
Reference string is
1 2 3 4 5
12345BUILD SUCCESSFUL (total time: 14 seconds)

That is incorrect.


I'm still unsure about your "reference string" word. Do you mean a user first enters how long a string should be, and then enters each character of the string? Then your program will join each character together and display it as a whole string? That's what I got from your last example.


i think u can try to separate the blocks, as are different function, like:
1 cicle for reading the user's data
and after 1cicle for writing (is also more clear to read, and expand)

int[] count = new Int[strlen];
int i;

System.out.println("Please digit the numbers");
for (i=0; i<strlen; i++){
System.out.println("Digited value are:");
for (i=0; i<strlen; i++){
