    Default System.out.println, beside each other?

    I'm tasked with making a bowling scoreboard, wich for the most part works, however, I'm wondering how I go about printing player1, player2, or whatevers scoreboard beside each other, I currently get this:
    Frame: 1
    Worp 1: X
    Worp2: -
    -----
    Frame: 2
    Worp 1: X
    Worp2: -
    -----
    Frame: 3
    Worp 1: X
    Worp2: -
    -----
    Frame: 4
    Worp 1: 9
    Worp 2: -
    -----
    Frame: 5
    Worp 1: X
    Worp2: -
    -----
    Frame: 6
    Worp 1: 8
    Worp 2: 1
    -----
    Frame: 7
    Worp 1: 7
    Worp 2: 1
    -----
    Frame: 8
    Worp 1: 3
    Worp2: /
    -----
    Frame: 9
    Worp 1: 2
    Worp 2: 2
    -----
    Frame: 10
    beurt 1: X
    beurt 2: 2
    beurt 3: 3
    -----
    -----
    Score: 154

    Is there a way to tell my program that it needs to start it's printline beside the already in place output?

    Edit: so that it would be:
    Player 1: Player 2:
    Frame 1: Frame 1
    Turn 1: Turn 1
    Turn 2: Turn 2

    Instead of what i now have,
    Player 1:
    Frame 1
    Turn 1:
    Turn 2:

    Player 2:
    Frame 1
    Turn 1:
    Turn 2:

    Default Re: System.out.println, beside each other?

    1) Use string addition in System.out.println 2) See the API for PrintStream (Java Platform SE 7 ) , which System.out is an instance of - in particular the print() method may be of use. Either way, you may have to re-organize your print statements to get what you desire - tough to give advice on this without code.

    use "concatenate" or "+" and "\t".... for format your output in ONE single println.
