    Default Delay.

    Is it possible to create a delay in java? I've been wondering this for a while. Then, could you use a variable in the delay thats a double?
    Ex.

    import java.util.Scanner;
    // Program starting (class etc, void main)
    Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
    double delaysec;
    System.out.println("How many seconds do you want to wait for each prompt?");
    delaysec = scan.next.Double(); // Get the double
    // delay command for delaysec amount
    for(int x = 0; x<5;x++) // Do it 5 times
    {
    System.out.println("This has waited : " + delaysec + "seconds.");
    //Delay command again
    }
    // End program

    long sleepInMilliseconds = 1000;//1 second
    try{

    }catch(InterruptedException e){
     
    }
