    I really need help: I cannot figure out the difference between println and print

    Hi,
    The teacher asks me to use both methods System.out.println ( )and System.out.print ( ) but I only see that they are the same. I have just worked out with Java for a few days and I really need help. I appreciate your help a lot. Thank you so much.
    My sample code:
    public class Question4{//The class name
    public static void main(String[]args){ //method name
    System.out.println(new String("This is my first try"));
    System.out.println();//The blank line
    System.out.println(new String("at programming in Java"));
    System.out.println();//The blank line
    System.out.println("It's fun!");

    I suggest playing with them a bit to see how they behave.

    System.out.print("test print. ");
    System.out.println("test println.");
    System.out.print("test print with newline.\n");
    System.out.println("test println with newline.\n");
    System.out.println("--END OF TEST--");

    Try this, and it will give you the answer.

    Everything you need to know about methods are in the API. The println and print methods are in the url=http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/io/PrintStream.html]PrintStream[/url] (out is an instance of PrintStream).

    System.out.print() Prints everything across
    System.out.println() Prints everything skipping a space

    For example:
    Code:
    System.out.println("OOH, FISH");
    System.out.println("Bye fish");
    Code:
    System.out.print("OOH, FISH");
    System.out.print("Bye fish");
    Output:
    Code:
    OOH, FISH
    Bye fish
    Code:
    OOH, Fish Bye fish
