Printf and scanf for Java

Tired of going through a big palava trying to implement "Enter theta:" for your Java app? Or an even bigger palava trying to print "theta" out to exactly 4 decimal places?

There are some Java classes available on the web that implement C printf-style formatting, but they were sufficiently incomplete or non-robust that I decided it was worthwhile to implement my own. I didn't find much of anything for emulating scanf, so I implemented that too, and put the whole thing together into a package called cformat. It's free for non-commercial use, so enjoy!
