If you are working with Java in IDE, most of the time, you would use System.out.printf:

  • In the video, the lecture import Java.io.Console, and you might not need that if you are using IDE such as IntelliJ

Like Zhaopeng said, you can use System.out.print()

On the job you are going to use the debugger instead of any console output. Which IDE are you using?

I am using IntelliJ
