Hands On Java: Project 1



1. Practice using the text editor and Java compiler.
2. Gain experience with sequential programming.
3. Practice using the I/O facilities.


Using the program Mult.java as a model, solve one of the problems below (your instructor will tell you which one to do).


1.1. Write Flies.java -- a program that produces the following output:

            flies        an
      Time                   arrow ...

      Fruit        like      banana.

1.2. Write Recipe.java -- a program that produces the following output:

	Pop 1 cup of popcorn
	Melt 1 stick of butter
	Combine popcorn and butter
	Salt to taste

1.3. Write Direct.java -- a program that produces detailed directions to your house, such as:

	Take I-96 to U.S. 131
	Take 131 3 miles south to Hall St.
	Take Hall 1 mile east to Madison Ave.
	Take Madison 3 blocks north to Sherman St.
	Take Sherman 2 blocks east to 1000 Sherman St.

1.4. Write Me.java -- a program that produces output describing yourself, such as:

   Name:    John Whorfin
   Gender:  Male
   Year:    Freshman
   Phone:   555-9876
   Hobbies: Swimming, volleyball and eighth-dimensional physics
   Quote:   "Laugh while you can, monkey-boy!"

Turn In: A hard copy of this grade sheet, attached to a hard copy of

  1. your source program; and
  2. the output from an execution of your executable program.
