This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Just as Cindy said (she is always correct), by default err and out print to the same place, the console. You can redirect either to print to your preference of locations. As far as I know, there are err and out only for purposes of the programmer. If you want to specify something as an error, or just want to see when a certain condition occurs, you can print it to err on the console. You can then send the out stuff to a file, for example, and the err messages won't get mixed up with the out stuff. It basically gives you 2 means by which to print things. That explanation was not very good, but I hope it helps a little. ------------------ Michael J Bruesch Codito, ergo sum... I code, therefore I am. My Java Games, I'm quite proud
