Command-Line I/O Objects

System provides several predefined I/O objects that are useful in a Java application that is meant to be launched from the command line. These implement the Standard I/O streams provided by most operating systems, and also a console object that is useful for entering passwords. For more information, refer to I/O from the Command Line in the Basic I/O lesson.
