    Default StringList character rotation

    Please please help! I would appreciate it so much :) Sorry if I am posting in the wrong place, I just started... :)

    I'm trying to get a StringList of all the rotations for a given string, such as abcd

    ie. abcd -> bcda -> cdab -> dabc

    but I only seem to be able to get one with my code

    public static String iterations(String s) {
    StringBuffer iteration = new StringBuffer(butFirst(s));
    iteration.append(first(s));
    return iteration.toString();
    }

    the two methods

    first(s) gives the first letter of the string, ie. a of abcd
    butFirst(s) gives the rest of the string, ie. bcd of abcd

    could someone please help me get a list of all the rotations? I tried using a for loop but it doesn't seem to work...

    Don't cross post.

    This is hardly and "advanced" question and you already posted a question in the "New to Java" forum 10 minutes earlier.
