Whats wrong with this code?

TheImmortalCommented:
You must declare your String input as:

Static String input;

Since you are accessing a Global String from a static method, the string must also be static. Your code sthould look like this:

import java.awt.*;

 public class text
 {
  static String input;
  public static void main(String args[])
  {
   input = args[1];
   System.out.println(input);
   System.exit(0);
  }
 }

Remember to pass in two arguments to your code since you have args[1] specified. The args array is Zero based (starts at 0) and increments from there.
