/**

* starting with the terms 1 and 1.
*/
public class Fibonacci {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int n0 = 1, n1 = 1, n2; // Initialize variables
System.out.print(n0 + " " + // Print first and second terms
n1 + " "); // of the series

for (int i = 0; i < 18; i++) { // Loop for the next 18 terms
n2 = n1 + n0; // Next term is sum of previous two
System.out.print(n2 + " "); // Print it out
n0 = n1; // First previous becomes 2nd previous
n1 = n2; // And current number becomes previous
}
System.out.println(); // Terminate the line
}
}
```

The code above generates the following result.
