import java.util.*;

public class NextBigDecimalOfScanner {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String str = "Hi, [IncludeHelp] +\n 10.0 true ";

        // Instantiates a Scanner object with
        // the given string str
        Scanner sc = new Scanner(str);

        // Display str
        System.out.println("sc.nextLine(): " + sc.nextLine());

        // By using nextBigDecimal() method is
        // to return the BigDecimal if exists
        System.out.println("sc.nextBigDecimal(): " + sc.nextBigDecimal());

        // By using close() method is to
