Language/Type: Java method basics mod parameters return
Author: Roy McElmurry (on 2010/12/28)

Write a static method called digitsInARow that takes an integer n as a parameter and that returns the highest number of digits that appear in a row in the base-10 representation of n. For many numbers the answer will be 1 because they don't have adjacent digits that match. But for a number like 3555585, the answer is 4 because there are four occurrences of the digit 5 that appear in a row. You are NOT allowed to use a String to solve this problem. You may assume that the value passed to the method is greater than or equal to 0.
