    Default Hello Java_enthousiastics !

    Hello Everybody ,

    As a retired programmer ( started my carreer in the punched-card-age: Yes that old ! ) and now programming for fun mostly in C on Linux-machines , I want to delve into the Java-scene .

    At first sight this seems a piece-of-cake , taking into considiration the syntax-simularities between C /C++ and Java !

    But alas : As one tries to produce some simple basic apps (p.e printing-out the partition-table in the MBR) under Java , a C-programmer stumbles upon a forest (jungle?) of IO-classes , and pointers ... where are the pointers ?

    I think the learning-curve will be pretty steep , learning new tricks , and forgetting the old-ones , will be hardest part !

    Thanks for all the expertise I'll find in this forum .

    Greetz!

    Welcome. I have also worked with punched cards and JCL on IBM machines.
    In java other than primitives, all variables are pointers.
    Yes the number of I/O classes is overwhelming.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
