    Are you talking about using a KeyListener? Reading in from the command prompt through a Scanner? Something else?

    ...yeah, something similar to that,,,,reading an input from the user using the Scanner, and the input expected is the key ESC, for the loop to break.

    Write a five line program using the Scanner and see what happens when you press different keys.
