    Not that I can think of, I am not sure, others may have better advice, you could just work it out on your Mac and then do it again at the computer lab.

    Don't take there comments so personally. People here are blunt and to the point. We can spot the problems, yes, but it's more helpful if you spot them.

    Could you please link me to NetBeans for Macs? I'll see if I can get that working.

    EDIT: I found this page. But which version should I download?

    I believe it can be downloaded on suns website. I don't use it so I'm not sure though. As long as you have a jvm on your Mac you should be able to run java code though. I believe suns site should have more information on installing the sdk and netbeans on a mac.

    But you do need a JDK to compile it!

    Find a JDK for the Mac on the Oracle (not Sun, that's closed down) downloads page. You don't need NetBeans, just creat your code in a test editor and compile it form the command line (the Mac does have a command line, doesn't it?).

    Lol, i never said anything about compiling, perhaps I should have.

    @op: like Darryl said, all you really need is a text editor and the jdk to compile and run java programs. The netbeans IDE may help the process but isn't exceptionally necessary at such early stages. I like notepad++ for writing code.

    To be honest sir, I've only learned one programming language from a professor. That one was Python. Everything else was self taught as a hobby.

    Its not that challenging to figure out what your doing from a textbook and your project is spelled out for you.

    Have you attempted to visual the project? Flow charts? Ideas written down? Have you tried any code? If you have then you should post it for us, the whole problem in this thread is that you're asking questions that can't be answered without extremely detailed questions or your code.

    Asking forum members to identify what needs to be done next is asking them to do the work for you. A major part of software development is taking the requirements and trying to make sense of them - understanding the task, working out exactly what the task entails, working out what is missing, what needs to be added, and how you're going to tackle it. Writing the actual code is just assembling and translating all the preparation work into a particular language.

    The hardest part of the software task is arriving at a complete and consistent specification, and much of the essence of building a program is in fact the debugging of the specification...
