    char arr[] = new char[] {'a','b','c'};
    
    // let us print the values
    System.out.println("Actual values: ");
    for (char value : arr) {
      System.out.println("Value = " + value);
    }

    // using fill for placing z
    Arrays.fill(arr, 'z');

    // let us print the values
    System.out.println("New values after using fill() method: ");
