View Full Version : cnt prefix in java?
12-09-2004, 10:35 PM
Im just wondering what cnt means? A java trainer I am working on put it in the answer to a puzzle that I was working on, and i dont know what it means..
static int factorial(int n)
int cnt = 2;
int fact = 1;
while(cnt <= n)
fact *= cnt;
any help would be appreciated. thanks.

it looks like it is just the name of the integer
the 'int' specifies the data type of the variable - integer
the 'cnt' is the name of it
then you set the value to the variable
its the same with int fact - its just the variable name
Hope this helps

Yup, as anarchy said, i'd imagine cnt is a short way of saying count since you're incrementing every time you iterate through the while loop :)
