Hello

Could you please tell me how to read the int or any input value which is entered in console while executing the program, using DataInputStream..

suppose System.out.println("Enter the Range:");
DataInputStream dis = new DataInputStream(System.in);
int range = dis.read();
System.out.println("The range is "+ range);

i think i am doing something wrong here..please suggest me..
Thanks
Prasad

Hey, I think you need to use readInt() rather than read()

Take a look at the JavaDoc for DataInputStream's various methods:
