I hope someone can help me. My Java textbook shows how to get input from the user and says that we should include a Java package called iopack. All the examples of user input in our book use this, and apparently it is a class that came with our book, but everyone in my class is having problems using it, so my teacher says we shouldn't use it. Is there some other package I should be including to enable the user input? I am sorry if this is a stupid question; this is the only way they show us in the book.
