Experts,

Regarding the "here document,"  I was wondering if there was an equivalent way to do this in a high-level language like Java? I haven't been successful finding anything as of yet. I have included an example of a Perl script here document below:

print <<EOHeader;

You will be prompted for your name and other information. Please give complete answers to each question. To return to the menu without making an entry type q [Enter].

EOHeader

This output everything between the EOHeader tags without having to use four or five print commands.

Thank you.

Java does not support such syntax. However, you may use StringBuffer as an alternative way like this:


StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
sb.append("\n").append("You will be prompted for your name and other information. Please give complete answers to each question. To return to the menu without making an entry type q [Enter].").append("\n");
System.out.println(sb.toString());
