    Beginner Help (Java code)

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class EnteredNames
       public static void main(String[] args)
          Scanner in = new Scanner(;
          System.out.println("Enter Name1:     ");
          System.out.println("Enter Name2:   ");
          System.out.println("Enter Name3:     ");
          System.out.println("Enter Name4:   ");
          System.out.println("Enter Name5:     ");

    I'm really new to programming and have been struggling with this forever. I'm supposed to have a user enter five names and then have those names printed out and stored in an array. This is what I have so far. If I could get just a heads start it would be greatly appreciated, I'm not asking for the entire project to be done, I just have no idea where to go from here.

    Well you have your scanner lined up and ready, you just need to tell it to wait for input. I suggest looking into nextLine().
