I'm starting to help my daughter to study Java. We just visited Sun's web site and downloaded NetBeans. She quickly pasted a program she did in a class. And what's a shame. The program used some terminal class to get user input (no question Mac environment was used in a class). I just changed a bit the program to use System.in. The program imeddiatly crashed after start. It seems System.in is in just closed condition. Why? How to write console applications in NetBeans? I like this IDE (I never used it before and it seems to neat, but can't do so simple things). Any help for poor father and daughter.
