Programming
Adding Inputs into Java proggrams

Question Description

I’m studying for my Programming class and need an explanation.

Hi fellow Java Lovers,
I am currently programming a small game from the knowledge I know, and its just a basic game where you guide yourself around a haunted house and try to find the exit.
Only problem is I don't know how to program user inputs into the program.

eg. Here is a piece of my code
"
protected void goRightThree()
{
System.out.println("You walk forward, trying not to make too much noise");
System.out.println("You come to a left turn and right turn which way do you go?");
double randomNumber = Math.random();
if (randomNumber >= 0.5)
{
System.out.println("You decide to go left");
System.out.println("");
goLeftFour();
}

else
{
System.out.println("You decide to go right");
System.out.println("");
goRightFour();
}
"

For the time being I just made the direction the user goes as a random decision but what I am aiming to do is make the user of this game be able to choose where he/she goes.
I know people probably thinking I am very new to Java but help would be very nice.


Thanks guys

Final Answer

You have many option to get input form user. you can use below classes for getting input from user.
1)InputStreamReader istream = new InputStreamReader(System.in) ;

2)BufferedReader bufRead = new BufferedReader(istream) ;
3)Scanner a = new Scanner(System.in);

if u r using first and second, you need to use readLine() method. On other hand, you need to use nextLine().

Thanks,
