It seemed fishy, why in the task description nothing about reading from console. Thanks for help guys. When we used args, task is nicer. Can be a little harsh when we have battle with terminal, but after that we're stronger and more resilient.

It appears that you've come a long way, Thanh. But I commiserate with the 'you' of the past. I feel so dumb right now.

this one wasn't easy... I knew there was something up when i didn't find the word "console" in the description. Look up the other comments for more info on what to do.

I would appreciate any feedback on why my code isn't working. I thought I'd be clever and try to use switch statements instead of if-else statements, but it doesn't appear to be accepting anything at all. Thank you in advance for your help.

PRO TIP!!! This task uses the String[] args bit of the main(String[] args) If you want to test this and run code based on th String[] args in IntelliJ do this: 1. Click on the play button next to public static void main.... 2. Select the last option 'Create solution main'... 3. In the Create Run Configuration window look to Program Arguments 4. Set your arguements here for example: -u 1 Washington m "04 15 1990" or -c Washington m "04 15 1990" This took me a LONG time to figure out, hope it helps someone else.

For those like me that like baby steps, I want to add to this: -u would be args[0], 1 would be args[1], m would be args[2] and "04 15 1990" would be args[3]. So -u 1 Washington m "04 15 1990" is all entered in the command line or in the Program Arguments mentioned above. The program then updates at Index 1 by changing the name, sex and birthdate to the aforementioned values. -c Washington m "04 15 1990" will go up to args[2] (args[0] = -c) (args[2] = "04 15 1990"). I know this is obvious to some but trying to also understand the command line threw me off. That's how the main method should be set up. Took wayyy too long to figure this out. I hope there's a lesson on this in the near future.

After 16 tries and probably about 6 hours with this, I finally solved this. Special thanks to Petros for breaking down the problem and requirements in a way that I was able to finally start understanding! : )

Is the best way to get the last index by using the size method? Like:
System.out.println(allPeople.size() - 1);
Anyone has another idea? I tried the method (lastIndexOf) but it doesn't seems to work

Haha, my first thought was the same, but it seemed very unprofessional.. So actually it is:
Note: This is Java arraylist IndexOf() method, not the same asJava String indexOf() Method.
