Preface

This module contains review questions and answers keyed to the module titled Jb0260: Java OOP: Command-Line Arguments .

The questions and the answers are connected by hyperlinks to make it easy for you to navigate from the question to the answer and back again.

Questions

Question 1 .

Provide a common example of a command-line statement that illustrates the use of command-line-arguments.

Answer 1

Question 2

Describe the purpose of command-line-arguments.

Answer 2

Question 3

True or false? In Java, syntax provisions must be made in the method signature for the main method to accommodate command-line-arguments even if the remainder of the program is not designed tomake use of them. If False, explain why.

Answer 3

Question 4

Provide the method signature for the main method in a Java application that is designed to accommodate the use of command-line-arguments.Identify the part of the method signature that applies to command-line-arguments and explain how it works.

Answer 4

Question 5

Explain how a Java application can determine the number of command-line-arguments actually entered by the user.

Answer 5

Question 6

Write a program that illustrates the handling of command-line arguments in Java.

Answer 6

Listing 1 . Handling command-line arguments in Java.
/*File SampProg11.java from module 32 Copyright 1997, R.G.BaldwinWithout reviewing the following solution, write a Java application that illustrates the handling of command-linearguments in Java. Provide a termination message that displays your name.**********************************************************/ class SampProg11 { //define the controlling classpublic static void main(String[] args){ //define mainfor(int i=0; i<args.length; i++) System.out.println( args[i]); System.out.println("Terminating, Dick Baldwin");}//end main }//End SampProg11 class.

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

The number of command-line arguments is equal to the number of elements in the array of references to String objects referred to by args . The number of elements is indicated by the value of the length property of the array. If the value is zero, the user didn't enter anycommand-line arguments.

Back to Question 5

Answer 4

The Java syntax for command-line arguments is shown below.

Java syntax for command-line arguments. public static void main(String[] args){. . . }//end main method

Each of the elements in the array object referred to by args (including the element at position zero) contains a reference to a String object that encapsulates one of the command-line arguments.

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

True.

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

Command-line-arguments are used in many programming and computing environments to provide information to the program at startup that it will needto fulfill its mission during that particular invocation.

Back to Question 2

Answer 1

DOS users will be familiar with commands such as the following:

Command-line arguments in DOS copy fileA fileB

In this case, copy is the name of the program to be executed, while fileA and fileB are command-line arguments.

Back to Question 1

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
