Turtle graphics exersice
I am new to java and i am using "Java how to program' book from dietel.I want help about that exersice on chapter 7 arrays.Here is the exersice :

(Turtle Graphics) The Logo language made the concept of turtle graphics famous. Imagine a mechanical turtle that walks around the room under the control of a Java application. The turtle holds a pen in one of two positions, up or down. While the pen is down, the turtle traces out shapes as it moves, and while the pen is up, the turtle moves about freely without writing anything. In this problem, you will simulate the operation of the turtle and create a computerized sketchpad.
Use a 20-by-20 array floor that is initialized to zeros. Read commands from an array that contains them. Keep track of the current position of the turtle at all times and whether the pen is currently up or down. Assume that the turtle always starts at position (0, 0) of the floor with its pen up. The set of turtle commands your application must process are shown in the figure.
Command Meaning
1 Pen up
2 Pen down
3 Turn right
4 Turn left
5, 10 Move forward 10 spaces (replace 10 for a different number of spaces)
6 Display the 20-by-20 array
9 End of data (sentinel)

Suppose that the turtle is somewhere near the center of the floor. The following "program" would draw and display a 12-by-12 square, leaving the pen in the up position:
As the turtle moves with the pen down, set the appropriate elements of array floor to 1s. When the 6 command (display the array) is given, wherever there is a 1 in the array, display an asterisk or any character you choose. Wherever there is a 0, display a blank.Write an application to implement the turtle graphics capabilities discussed here.
