import java.lancs.*;

public class GoodExample
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception

    // read in and output a String
    BasicIo.prompt("please type in a string ");
    String wordResponse = BasicIo.readString();
    System.out.println("the string you typed was **" + wordResponse + "**");


    //read in and output an integer
    BasicIo.prompt("please type in an integer ");
    int numResponse = BasicIo.readInteger();
    System.out.println("the integer you typed was " + numResponse);
  } 	// end of method main
