    Default Simple game in Java

    How can I make my program read the input 'Higher' or 'Lower'?

         PlayingCard cardOne = new PlayingCard();
         PlayingCard cardTwo = new PlayingCard();
         double, bank, bet;
          System.out.print("\n\nHow much is in your bank? "); 
          bank = scan.nextDouble(); 
          System.out.print("\n\nHow much would you like to bet? "); 
          bet = scan.nextDouble(); 
          if (bet > 100)
          System.out.println("Sorry, your bet was too high.");
          if (bet > bank)
          System.out.println("Sorry, your bet was too high.");
          System.out.println("Do you think the second card will be higher or lower?");
          String Input = scan.nextLine(); 
    if (cardOne.getFace() < cardTwo.getFace() && Input.equals("higher"))
                                   while (cardOne.isEquals(cardTwo));

    Wink Re: Simple game in Java

    Use the following

    String inputValue = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Please input a value");

    and pasrse the input if you want any int or any other type

    you can also use System.in.read() as follows
    import java.io.IOException;
    public class MainClass {
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        int inChar;
        System.out.println("Enter a Character:");
        try {
          inChar = System.in.read();
          System.out.print("You entered ");
        catch (IOException e){
          System.out.println("Error reading from user");
