Warmup:

  1. Go to the Java String documentation
  2. Practice reading documentation by finding method(s) that would help you accomplish the following:
    1. What if you wanted to grab a single character of the String from a particular location?
      1. What is the name of the method? Is it overloaded?
      2. What are the required input parameters to use the method?
      3. What is the return type of the method?
    2. What if you wanted to remove any extraneous spaces or tabs (whitespace) around a String?
      1. What is the name of the method? Is it overloaded?
      2. What are the required input parameters to use the method?
      3. What is the return type of the method?
    3. If you were given a large String and all you wanted to do was isolate the very last word. How would you find the location of the beginning of the last word? (Hint: words are separated by spaces)
      1. What is the name of the method? Is it overloaded?
      2. What are the required input parameters to use the method?
      3. What is the return type of the method?
