Comparing Strings After Using BufferedReader

Line 10 is where I seem to have a problem. I want it to evaluate to true. Works fine when I initialize the string to 'test' right before doing the if statement, but not when inputting 'test' from the keyboard.

Or do I just need explicit casting?



PS - Thanks Darin that work great.

Strings are classes, not primitive types like ints or chars. So, use the equals method.

I'm not sure if the BufferedReader leaves the newline character in or not, so check that out as well.
