Compared to languages like C++ and Pascal, Java's formatted I/O capabilities are rudimentary. To put Java programmers on an equal footing, I have provided a Java class called ACMIO that simplifies input and formatted output. ACMIO will be made available by sites that support Java. If you plan to program in Java, download the class and try it out. You are not required to use it, but you may find it useful.
