I need to use the compare operator to strings but it is'nt not working. Please help.

What I have tried:

I tried the following:

public class InsertionSort{

public static void main(String[] args){
String[] arr ={"Atlanta","New York","Dallas","Omaha","San Francisco"};
int count = 0;
String sortedArray[] = sort_subarray(array, array.length);
for(int i=0;i<sortedarray.length;i++){
system.out.println(sortedarray[i]);
}
}

public static void InsertionSort(String[] words){
string="" temp="" ;
for(int="" i="0;i<f;i++){
for(int" j="i+1;j<f;j++){
if(array[i].compareToString(array[j])">0){
temp = array[i];
array[i]=array[j];
array[j]=temp;
}
}
}

Again, because it doesn't compile. For example:
string="" temp="" ;
Did you mean
String temp="" ;


You should expect to get syntax errors every day, probably many times a day while you are coding - we all do regardless of how much experience we have! Sometimes, we misspell a variable, or a keyword; sometimes we forget to close a string or a code block. Sometimes the cat walks over your keyboard and types something really weird. Sometimes we just forget how many parameters a method call needs.

We all make mistakes.

And because we all do it, we all have to fix syntax errors - and it's a lot quicker to learn how and fix them yourself than to wait for someone else to fix them for you! So invest a little time in learning how to read error messages, and how to interpret your code as written in the light of what the compiler is telling you is wrong - it really is trying to be helpful!

So read this: How to Write Code to Solve a Problem, A Beginner's Guide Part 2: Syntax Errors[^] - it should help you next time you get a compilation error!
