7. Arrays


In this chapter you’ll learn:

• To use arrays to store data in and retrieve data from lists and tables of values.

• To declare arrays, initialize arrays and refer to individual elements of arrays.

• To use the enhanced for statement to iterate through arrays.

• To pass arrays to methods.

• To declare and manipulate multidimensional arrays.

• To write methods that use variable-length argument lists.

• To read command-line arguments into a program.

Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book.

Isaiah 30:8

To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.


Begin at the beginning, ... and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

Lewis Carroll
