    Default Question: Loops, Positive ints etc...

    Hi again my friends,
    I encountered the following question:
    "Write a loop that reads positive integers from standard input, printing out those values that are greater than 100, each followed by a space, and that terminates when it reads an integer that is not positive. Declare any variables that are needed."

    In order to solve the exercise I wrote the following code which seems to work. However, I was wondering if this really is the correct way to solve the question. If it's not, do you think it's an acceptable solution or would I get some points detracted for this code.
    Would love to hear your opinion. Thanks :)

    Java Code:
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class copy {
        public static void main(String[] args)
            Scanner input = new Scanner(;
            while (true)
                int num = input.nextInt();
                if (num >= 100)
                    System.out.print(num + " ");
                else if (num >= 0 && num < 100)
            System.out.println("Program terminated");

    I would do it like this:

    Java Code:
    while ((num= input.nextInt()) >= 0) 
       if (num >= 100)
          System.out.print(num+" ");
    (I left out the declaration part and the code doesn't anticipate for incorrect input).

    kind regarrds,
