Exciting... anyway, would anyone please tell me the simplest input function for Java? Or is there a reason that I couldn't find it? I'd like to start learning Java again! Thank you very much.

import Javax.swing.* package,
and use the JOptionPane.showInputDialog( String msg)
to accept input. It returns String so type cast to your desired type.
