HI all, I have just come across this:
System.out.printf("Student %2d: %3d\n");
What does that ":" mean? I assume it is a kind of separator becasue that line prints something like this:
Student 1: 87

The colon and following space are just text which will be ouput along with the variable data which will be inserted in the string where the format specifiers are found (%2d and %3d).

@stultuske, yes I know, but I am not really tha familiar with the documentation as yet, I find it rather confusing...
