How to initialize an array in Java

Allen Downey, in his book,”How To Think Like A Computer Scientist”, writes:The details look different in different languages, but a few basic instructions appear in just about every language:

  • Input: Gather data from the keyboard, a file, or some other device.
  • Output: Display data on the screen or send data to a file or other device.
  • Arithmetic: Perform basic arithmetical operations like addition and multiplication.
  • Conditional Execution: Check for certain conditions and execute the appropriate sequence of statements.
  • Repetition: Perform some action repeatedly, usually with some variation.

Many computer languages provide a mechanism to call functions provided by shared libraries. Provided the functions in a library follow the appropriate run-time conventions (e.g., method of passing arguments), then these functions may be written in any other language
