Does anyone remember what section the sout topic was in?

Messy.java
import java.util.*;

public class Messy {
    public   static void main(String[]      args){
System.out.println("five");System.out.println("one");
    System.out.println("six");
    System.out.println( "four"       );     System.out.println("two");
    Please comment out this line and
    this line as well with a hotkey that does multi-line commenting
    List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList("six", "seven", "eight", "nine");
    for (String numberWord:         numberWords) {
      // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberW
      }
    }}

Hey Jose,

I don't remember there being a specific point where this shortcut is shown, as sout is just an IDE shortcut for the System.out.println() method.

If you type sout in the IDE and press the Tab key. The method auto-completes and you just have to fill in your string to print.

Hope that helps. :)

Keep coding! :dizzy:
