Why ar you using printf instead of println?

I assume that it ar just different ways of programming, but when do you choose f or ln?

I accedently put

System.out.println("Whoa there!"); System.out.println("there was %s", iae.getMessage());

and I got: method PrintStream.println() is not applicable (actual and formal argument lists differ in length)

I think printf allows the passing of variables.
