When doing the Hobbits be the compiler exercise my solution to get it to compile and provide output for all three hobbits name leaves me perplexed.
It did compile with a variety of errors but threw main exceptions. My Array length and the amount of arrays I use are not the same, so wouldn't this be a null reference? Mr Reference gets upset but this :-)

Ted,

Can you post the error messages you are getting and your code (inside[code] [/code] tags). Then someone can help you out.

I don't own a copy Head First Java. I'd love to help you, but as suggested above, you need to post the code you are trying to compile and the EXACT error messages you recieve.

On a bit of terminology: when you get compiler errors, it is not correct to say "it compiled" because in common programming parlance this implies that there were no errors.
