Question: In Java, why 'system.out.println' is long and why not simply use 'print'?
Asked by James Gosling (223.236.87.x) on February 19 2024, 6:06pm
Reply on February 19 2024, 7:12pm:
    there is an appeal of not polluting a global namespace with a million functions, because if you make your own function called "print" then it will be ambiguous, when reading code, which one is called.
