It doesn't make any changes in your code until you declare a Scanner. The main use of Scanner is to get user input. If you are unable to understand Scanner, try to analyze other java codes made by other users so that you can get idea about what it is.

You can import it and then make a user input, it doesn't affect your code however.

in laymans terms: the scanner is not in all programs, and you did not create the code. So you have to import it from the java library (add the code) to your program in order to use the code. You could just create your own scanner object, then you wouldn't need to import it. Good luck with that though.

the command line will enable the user to input data directly using the keyboard or import them from the file importing will not have any other effects to the code
