Making Loop to Search an array
here is my assignment.
Below you will find an array of names to use in this problem.
input should contain a number, which we will call n.
input should contain a number, which we will call i.
input should contain a letter, which we will call l.
You are to create a program which looks at all the names from 0 through n;
if the letter l, upper or lower case, appears in the name at position i,
then the name should be printed along with a message like:
xxxxxx contains the letter l at position i
where xxxxxx is the name, l is the letter from input and i is the
position from input.
If the input n is greater than the number of names,
an error message should be printed and no names should be examined.
If a particular name does not have i characters,
it should not cause an error message, but that name should be ignored. That is, if i is 6, Iowa should be ignored.
I figure i have to create a loop to search through the array of:
var names = new Array();
names = "Alabama";
names = "ALASKA";
names = "Arizona";
names = "Arkansas";
names = "California";
names = "Colorado";
names = "Connecticut";
names = "Delaware";
names = "Florida";
names = "Georgia";
names = "Hawaii";
But i am not sure how to do this. Im researching loops now. Any links would be helpful. Im obviously a nub.
Hate is not appreciated, just some love for the newbie. ;-)
