    Question Traversing through a stack of objects, and puttin them info in an array

    What is a good way to go through a stack of objects?

    I have to compare each object of the stack, to a object I have predifined and then put that object into an array. Stopping this "process" when I find a match.

    Assuming there will be a match and that the stack is not empty what would you recommend I do?


    Thanks,

    SZ

    Check the Stack class api in the javadocs to learn what methods are available.
    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    
    public class StackTest {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            String[] names = {
                "Alice", "Sam", "John", "Mary", "Nancy", "Fred"
            };
            String searchFor = "John";
            Stack<String> stack = new Stack<String>();
            for(int i = 0; i < names.length; i++)
                stack.push(names[i]);
            System.out.println("stack = " + stack);
            // Look for searchFor string in stack:
            String[] stackItems = new String[stack.size()];
            int size = stack.size();
            for(int i = 0; i < size; i++) {
                String s = stack.pop();
                if(s.equals(searchFor)) {
                    System.out.println("Found " + searchFor +
                                       " at index of " + i + " in stack.");
                    break;
                }
                stackItems[i] = s;
            }
            System.out.println(Arrays.toString(stackItems));
        }
    }
