  • Description of boxing (char) in Java

    Hey Everyone,

    I hope this is technical enough for the Techoff part off the forum.

    I just had an exam on OOP which is based on Java. The exam had a question as follows:

    char input = (char)System.in.read();
    Why is the (char) required before the System.in.read()?

    my answer is: To encapsulate the object that is returned by System.in.read() into a type that the program can understand.

    I got this question wrong. He couldn't tell me why i got it wrong but i did.

    Am i wrong? This teacher seems so uncertain about his subject i would really like a second opinion.

    Thanks for any input,

    Jonathan Merriweather
