when we say something like this
Console c = System.console(); String u = c.readLine("%s", "username: ");
well what's with the formatting???
we use formatting when we are printing something to the output!
why are we formatting what we are reading and how come that's possible!!!

This version of Console.readLine() does not format what it is reading. It formats a user prompt and then returns what the user entered. This is explained in the documentation.
It is sorta covered in the
