.Contains Method

How can I implement the .contains method in order to produce a list of bad words. I have been stuck on this for while now.

1 Answer

Hi, what do u mean by a list of bad words? s The java string contains() method searches the sequence of characters in this string. It returns true if sequence of char values are found in this string otherwise returns false. so for example if u want to search if a String contains the word "ugly" u need to do something like this:

String badSentence = "Bob is very ugly but he knows java :D";
System.out.println("ugly has ben identified in the String");

hope this helps.
