Hey guys i hope someone can point me in the right direction
I have just started my first year in computer science and have just recieved my first java assignment. I know its really simple but i just cant get my head round it, the worse thing is, although it was simple stuff, i actually did some java last year so this SHOULD be a doddle. I have been looking for help online but because my lecturer thought it would be a good idea to start with applets i am finding that all the examples and tutorials are way above my head. there are whole chunks of jargon and code that i just dont understand (last year i did VERY SIMPLE applications)
i have to create a simplified game of hangman or a program that will convert time from a 12 hour format to 24 hr format. I decided to do the clock thing because it sounds easier (i know i'm stupid lol).
when i'm in lectures i understand what is going on, and line by line i understand most of the example codes we have been given, but when i have to implement it i just dont know where to start
i was given this assignment a week ago. So far I have asked a mate to help, he's in his first year at a different uni, so he really couldnt offer much. i have also spent about 16hrs in total over the past week searching for online material that might help. I have spent all evening trying to find something that might help.
i'm not expecting anyone to write the code for me because i really do want to learn. Last year we worked from psuedo (sp?) code. if someone was to write that for me, would that be too much help?
i have made several rubbish attempts at writing the code but beyond declaring int variables for hrs mins and secs i am at a loss. i dont even know what methods i should use
p.s.... thanks for taking the time to read, if you got this far lol, i will check back as soon as i can as i have decided that 6 hours of total unproductivity (if thats even a word lol) is quite enough for one day and you guys really are my last hope at the moment
