I have this code for searching a multidimensional array from left to right and right to left.

What I need to do now is to search the array from the top left to the bottom right,the top right to the bottom left, the bottom left to the top right, and the bottom right to the top left.

What would I need to change in my existing methods to make a new method to do what I want?

`` // Left to Rightpublic static String findLeftToRight (char[][]board, String word) {char[] letters = word.toCharArray();for (int i = 0; i < board.length; i++){for (int j = 0; j < board[i].length; j++) {boolean found = true;for (int k = 0; k < letters.length; k++) {if ((j+k >= board[i].length) || (letters[k] != board[i][j+k])) {found = false;break;}}if (found) {return "String " + word + " found in row=" + i + " col=" +j;}}}return "String " + word + " not found";} // end findLeftToRight// Right to Leftpublic static String findRightToLeft (char[][]board, String word) {char[] letters = word.toCharArray();for (int i = board.length-1; i > -1; i--){for (int j = board[i].length-1; j > -1; j--) {boolean found = true;for (int k = 0; k < letters.length; k++) {if ((j - k < 0) || (letters[k] != board[i][j-k])) {found = false;break;}}if (found) {return "String " + word + " found in row=" + i + " col=" +j;}}}return "String " + word + " not found";} // end findLeftToRight``

so i assume that your multidimensional array is a cube means row and column has same length.

From top left to bot right compare what you want with board[i][i];

for top right to bot left would be same for loop but compare with board[length-i][i]

for bot left to top right would be compare with board[i][length-i]

for bot right to top left would be compare with board[length-i][length-i]

all of them are in for loop from i to length
