    Use system.out.println() any where you write to your file. Just mirror the printing statements you do to your file with system.out.prints to the console. Simple as that.

    Some OSs have command line operators to pipe a program's output into a file. Is that what you are asking about? Do a search for your OS to see what the operator is.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    i used System.setOut but that redirects the output to the text file and the console is left blank.
