    Default conversion

    package conversion;

    public class Mgr4
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    String s1 = String.format("sum of %d,%d is"+10,20,[10+20]);
    }
    }


    can any one tell why the statement--String s1 = String.format("sum of %d,%d is"+10,20,[10+20]); results compilation error

    Thanks in advance
    Daya

    Remove those square brackets, they are used for array indexes and don't make any sense here.

    kind regards,

    don;t really use format in java, but you are printing 3 ints (%i, %d works). You have 2.

    Try:

    Java Code:
    String.format("sum of %i,%i is %i",10,20,(10+20));

    What compilation error do you get?

    ETA: Oh come on. Don't let him get away with sloppy questions like that!
    For shame!

    I personally found this question reasonable compared to the crap where they dump pages and pages of unreadable code at us with a single "urgent, this doesn't work! Send me teh codez for dis script! plzzzzzz! The deadline if on Friday!"

    kind regards,
