Introductions code not working, not sure what I did wrong.

console.printf("Hello, my name is Spencer\n"); This is what I input, then ran the console: javac Introductions.java java Introductions

From what I can tell I followed the video but still not pulling up anything after I run it.

You have to import Console first, it should looks like this:

import java.io.Console;

public class Test {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    Console console = System.console();

And you should run it with: javac Introductions.java && java Introductions
