Hi,

I would strongly suggest you paste all this into a java editor:



You'll see some errors. I fix some lines in your code which I thought were typo, but you know better, make sure you have the correct text.

Lines 3 and 5 give me errors:
3: Map doesn't have the iterator method, would need to be casted.
5: <Map.Entry> does not match the declared <Integer,String>

Alex
