    Default Find in HashMap

    I made a dictionary (HaskMap).
    And I also have a: String info = "ACRFW"

    Now how do I look all those letters up in HashMap?
    I know how to store them, but how to look up one by one?

    Lund,

    Something like this?

    Java Code:
    for (int i= 0; i < yourString.length(); i++ }
       String ss= yourString.substring(i, i+1);
       System.out.println(ss+": maps to: "+yourMap.get(ss));
    }
    kind regards,

    You're welcome of course; the answer was obvious: you want part of a String so the API documentation for the String class is the place to be; it doesn't take rocket science to see that the substring( ... ) method could do the job (there are other ways to accomplish this).

    kind regards,
