Interactive prompts from command line?
Posted on 2002-04-24
I have written a program that runs on a Unix commandline. Sadly I have to parse it over 15 arguments when I run it. Is there anyway that I can in my main method get the program to run and then print line a prompt statement telling a user which parameter to enter so that I can then pump this into a variable for use? ie on the command line I want to see the following:
>java comparator --run the program
>Please enter Value 1: 3 --user enters this value
>Please enter output dir: c:\oput\ --user enters this
>Please.... etc etc
I assume I will need some kind of While statement?
Does anyone have a clue what i'm on about? Can anyone help?
