    Default What exactly is the syntax for println()

    Which is correct:

    System.out.in.println("test");

    or

    System.in.out.println("test");

    ???

    I found both examples at Oracle's Java Tutorials.

    I doubt that very much.

    If you go to the System class in the Java API you see that the class has a static variable called out which is a PrintStream object. If you then read about the PrintStream class you will find all the print and println methods belong to that class. Therefore the correct syntax is:
    System.out.println();
    Improving the world one idiot at a time!
