    Question Comparing String To Array Element ?

    I have the following code:

    Java Code:
    public class Equals {
            String[] s1 = {"red", "white", "black", "blue"};
            String[] s2 = {"red", "black", "green"};
            String[] s3 = {"red", "green"};
    What I need is to give me the following output:

    Select Strings:

    Comparing String s1, s2, s3

    red 3 matches.
    black 2 matches.
    green 2 matches.

    Someone can help me?

    Thanks a lot!

    I am still not certain what you want to do. What are you comparing? It sounds to me like
    you are doing a frequency count on the colors in the supplied string arrays. Why are you using three
    different string arrays?

    Edit: Are you by chance counting the number of String arrays which contain a specific color?

    It's better to decompose the problem, i.e. find an element e in an array (or find and count all elements in an array that match an element e), and build what you want from there ...

    kind regards,
