Hi Guys!

Can someone point out whats wrong with my code?



When I run them, the compiler says

1. '.class' expected at line 6
2. int j = 0; not a statement at line 6
3. undefined label: loop at line 10

When I remove the int j statement its fine.... I guess its gotta do something with the initialization and I think Java will not permit initializations following a label. Is that true?

I'd like an explanation on that....


Thanks!!!

Include the loop in {}

Yes,

labels have to come immediately before a "block" of code. This block can be a for/while/do loop, or it can be marked by enclosing braces {}
 
What is that? Is that a mongol hoarde? Can we fend them off with this tiny ad?
