    Question Read the console with JLine 2 not working?!

    Hey guys

    I tried to get the current line of the java console via JLine 2. Here is the code of the attempt:

    reader = new ConsoleReader();
    String line;
    while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
        System.out.println("LINE FOUND!");
    }

    But this does not work, neither in the IDE (Eclipse) nor in GitBash

    Do you have any idea, what I did wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    this does not work,
    Please explain what "not work" means?
    Are there errors?
    What do you expect the code to do when it is executed?

    Are you sure there is a console for input inside of those IDEs? Have you tried executing the code in a command prompt?

    What package is the ConsoleReader class in?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    First of all, there are no errors (sadly).
    I expect the code to post "LINE FOUND!" into the console after typing something in the console and pressing enter.
    And I am NOT sure wether Eclipse supports this type of input but GitBash, as I told above, does also not work.

    Have you tried executing it in a command prompt window?

    Well, I am sorry. I was pretty sure that GitBash was capable of java console input.

    Sorry
