? about System.out.read()

I have a simple console application that I need to insert a pause in.
Basically I am wanting a "press any key to continu" type thing.
I thought that I should be able to do it with:
System.out.read()
but I cannot seem to get it to work.
I tried searching the internet and could find very little on this topic.
Any suggestions?

Try this

The program will print Hello and then pause for user input. If you hit the enter key "World" will get printed on screen.
Hope this helps.
