Yes and no.
"Yes", there are such programs.
"No", they don't work.

Well, I can give you some hints.
  • "cout << something" is the same as "System.out.print(something)" in Java.
  • List<string> is a template instantiation, something that current versions of Java don't have (but JDK 1.5 will!) It means a List specialized to hold string objects. You could use a plain java.util.LinkedList .
  • "cin >> something" is a little trickier in Java; it means read "something" from standard input -- i.e., System.in in Java.


  • This program makes use of a template class List<>, which you don't show here; it's not a class from the standard library. The string class is, though.
