Hi there,
I'm writing a program that prints the first 10 times table but the format it is printing in the dos prompt is really ugly, I want to make it aligned, how do I do that? I know in C, I can't remember it exactly but I was pretty sure that it uses like %3.2f to reserve 3 spaces for float, not sure what it was for integers. My question is what is the syntax to reserve spaces in Java using the System.out.println(). Thanks a bunch!
Margaret

There is no equivalent in java. Here is a link to an alternative. Or you can use the NumberFormat or DecimalFormat class.
