exercise of recursive method
i was trying to do an exercise but i cannot resolve it.
the exercise asks us to write a recursive method
public static int myCompare (String s1, String s2)
that receives 2 strings and compare them.
it returns 1 if string s1 comes after s2 in the dictionary (lexicographly)
the method returns 2 if string s1 comes after s2 in the dictionary
and it returns 0 if strings s1 and s2 are exactly the same.
s1 = "mother" and s2 = "class"
output: 1 ('m' comes after 'c')
the method must be a recursive method and mustn't use loops.
in the solution it's only allowed to use the following existing methods (from String class):
public char charAt(int i)
public String substring(int i)
public int length()
thanks for your help!!
