RE: help with my String
One of the main things to do first though is to look through the Java Api
to see if you can find any classes or methods that could be of assistance.
The mailing list should not be the first place you look to try to get help.
For the last couple of questions that have been asked, if the person would
have done a simple 2 minute scan of the String and StringBuffer classes and
thier associated methods, the answers could have been found. If you can't
find the answer after that, then send an email explaining your problem.
But we need to first do a little research ourselves to solve the problem
and not depend on everyone else. That's what makes a good developer, or
employee for that matter.

Unfortunately, its often difficult to ask a question when you don't know
specifically what you are looking for. This is particularly true of
searching using google or the old dejanews archives. Mailing lists offer a
much higher level of support in a much more user friendly, timely fashion.
