This might actually be a quicker way to do exactly what I need to do now, I mean 
quicker than Scanner. Thanks for the great tip.

However it has 2 drawbacks in comparison with C's scanf - it doesn't take the 
same symbols and formatting in its pattern as printf, and it can't handle 
multiple occurrences of the same variable in the pattern.
