    Unhappy Need help with homework for Java programming class

    Hi,
    I'm have been unable to attend Java programming classes due to transportation problems. I don't own a car and drive to Collage by bus (100+ km /60+ miles) every day and am unable to attend this morning class. As part of the final, homeworks are a necessity for the completion of the class. I am up to pace on the reading material but would really need some help with homeworks (one due every week). For a seasoned Java programmer the homeworks are most likely 10 minutes of work, but I don't even know how to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologize for my lackluster English.

    Please post any questions you have about your assignment and the code you have written wrapped in code tags.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer. My problem lies with me not knowing how to tackle the "problem" aka. I don't know how to start.

    Can you ask your instructor for help getting started?

    I have tried asking. They refuse to give any information regarding homeworks and I got told off...

    Can you make a list of the features the program is supposed to have?
    Then start at the top and work on the items in the list one at a time?

    I understand what I need to do, just don't know how to write it down in code.

    I understand what I need to do
    Make a list of the steps the program needs to take
    and start on the first step.
    Post what the code needs to do for that step and we'll help you find the java code for it.
    Then move to the next step.

    The first thing to do and probably the hardest is generating the keyboard configurations. So get that
    done first and validate it (either visually or computationally). The rest should be relatively easy.

    I know how to do that on paper, but I don't know how to write it in Java

    Can you describe the step you are working on and what problems you are having with it?

    The first part, I can mannage. Second through fourth step are impossible for me becouse I don't know how to set the table/pyramid/spiral in a way that the program could read it and use it for calculating distances between numbers

    Ok, post what you have and ask some questions about how to do the next step. Be sure to wrap any posted code in code tags.

    Remember that "spiral" or "pyramid" are for visual understanding. When you finally compute the distance, it is not necessary to
    know which type of keyboard you are using. You just need to ensure that for any keyboard value, you get its proper coordinates.
    This concept is known as a model. The model is simply "information" that represents the keyboard. Square and spiral are terms
    used in providing a visual representation of the model.
