Hi,
I am making a java program to make a countdown timer.
User enters time,then when time is up a message is printed.
How do I print the time on the same line?
Please tell me how to go about it.
Thanks.

Just use google. Type System.out.println() java, or you could also try Java IO. Also, an easy way to 'count' would be

// X
Thread.getThread().sleep(1000); //waits for 1 second.
//If you print out right here, you can be sure that the time is extremely close to 1 second from X

// Read in the amount of time you want to wait in seconds, call it "time"
Thread.getThread().sleep(time * 1000); //waits for 1 second if time = 1.
//Print out the time you waited.

Edited.
