    Default Help user interface

    Hi, I need help with a small simple program i am making for java all i need is to do a user interface with they use the arrows on the keyboard not the ones on the num pad on the right.
    Here is a table of what happens when what arrows get pushed down.

    Java Code:
    Left Arrow:x=x-1;
    Right Arrow:x=x+1;
    Up Arrow:y=y+1;
    Down Arrow:y=y-1;
    And the default is that x=0 and y=0 just a simple script is all that i am looking for.

    This is difficult to do from the command line. I assume you are planning on creating a JFrame or some such window to capture events? With swing you can capture keyboard events and map them to what keys were pressed. You can do it by adding a keyboard listener.
