Looking for output.

Here is a dumb question.  I just started to learn Java and a book I bought, 1001 Java Programmer's Tips, has been very helpful.  In the book it uses a method for debugging.

System.out.println("displayed text");

I never see the text "displayed text."  The book says it displays in the "console."  I don't know what they are referring to as the console.

I am using the Java which came with my Borland C++ 5.01 and running the applet through Netscape Navigator 4.0.

Thanks for your help.

System.out.println() is usualy used for "Console" applications, i.e.: not for appletts but for programs that run inside a DOS box.

Foutunatley, Netscape provides a way to see the output of this call. Select the Communicator menu and choose Java Console. You will see the text there.

No such thing as a dumb question! Answers on the other hand ... :-)

BTW, don't discard this technique only because its generaly not used for applets. Sometimes it works out as a grat debuffing tool.
