How I Got Interested in Java I/O

  1. seems like a pretty boring, straight-forward topic

  2. I wrote JNP and discovered that a lot of questions were about I/O

  3. Decided to write a quick 2 month, 200 page book about inpout and output in Java

  4. 6 months and 600 pages later...

I really wanted to show people two things:

  1. How to read a line of text from the console

  2. How to do without printf()
