how can i scan a character from scannner class( just like int-nextInt,Boolean-nextBoolean)

Well, is there a nextCharacter method? No? Then what about simply using next and then toCharArray on the resulting String?

tanx.can you explain little bit more using a example

String aLine = scannner.nextLine(); // read the next line (test with hasNext() first?)
char aChar = aLine.charAt(0); // get the first character

I'm sorry, but why didn't you take the clues you'd been given, look at the API docs, and see if you could come up with something. It's usually a bit more satisfying that way, and definately more instructional and useful.

Hi friends,
there is another way to scan a single char from keyboard.
since there is no short way like nextInt();

the only solution is:
char aChar;
aChar =;
