    Red face How do I get user input?

    Hello guys, I am fairly new in java, I have been coding in my class at school (Grade 11 Computer science) and i just downloaded the program on my computer at home, unfortunately i cannot access my computer notes at home and i also dont remember certian specifics of coding, so my question is how would i get user input to create a program. The comments are the parts i dont remember. (I am trying to slowly build my memory with this stuff)
    Thanks So much for your help!
    Here is my code so far:
    import java.util;

    public class hello_world {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    string name;

    //WHAT DO I PUT HERE????
    System.out.print("Please type your name: ");
    //And here????
    System.out.println("Hello," + name);

    oh and there may be a few coding errors in here, if so do you mind pointing them out to me? thanks
    -newbie with no notes :(

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with highlight tags:

    See the Scanner class for some methods that could be useful.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Do an exercise: literally type "java get user input" into Google. See what you get.

    Hint: you are not the first person who asks this, so the answer is most likely already floating out there about a thousand times. Finding one is much faster than having to wait for an answer in a forum.
