You shouldn’t care what the internal coding is, but if you insist:-
  • 1: Find the src.zip file in your Java installation folder.
  • 2: Unzip it.
  • 3: Navigate to the ja‍va folder
  • 4: Navigate to the lang folder
  • 5: Read the System.java file
  • If you need the JVM code, you can download it too, but I can’t remember whence.

    Hello,

    System.out.println()

    out => PrintStream

    PrintStream => pirntln method invoke print method => Javadoc PrintStream println(java.lang.String)

    docs.oracle.com wrote: public void print(String s)
    Print a string. If the argument is null then the string "null" is printed. Otherwise, the string's characters are converted into bytes according to the platform's default character encoding, and these bytes are written in exactly the manner of the write(int) method.
    Parameters:
    s - The String to be printed



    Javadoc PrintStream print(java.lang.String)

    If you want an implementation, you can extract the code in open-jdk :

    open-jdk source

    What is there, you did not understand? It simply says that the System class has an object "out" of PrintStream class. You have already shown the code there. If you are worried about the initialization of "out",then

    shows you how "out" is reassigned

    Cheers
