    problems with error messages


    I recently downloaded the VisualAge 2.0 for Windows and all of its
    documentation. I started to work on an example in the "Getting Started"
    document, bu got stuck with an error message (something about a character
    literal expected) that I cannot understand because I cannot find any
    document that explains what that message means or possible solutions. I
    donīt even know where the problem is exactly, since the software doesnīt
    mark the exact place. Would anyone send me a list of error messages with
    their meanings and explanations? Is there any way the program can pinpoint
    the error?

    Thank you

    Best regards,

    Eric Miedzowicz

    I symapthize. I would also like to find a list of error messages. As far
    as location goes, there's usually a statement number in messages, at least
    in the javac command I got through Borland JBuilder 2. Frustrated by the
    learning curve, I borrowed java, javac and javadoc from the package and spent
    6 months working with just these. The line number didn't do me any good,
    so I put in a lot of System.out.println("#1"); - type statements, and was
    able to narrow down. When I went back to the JBuilder editor, I saw that
    when I click on a message, the exact line is displayed, so if your Visual
    Age doesn't give this to you (which would really surprise me), I'd recommend
    Jbuilder 3 Standard, for about $99.

    About the message: Be sure that your quotation marks are the right kind.
    I believe it is that double quotes make strings, whereas single ones make
    characters. --or something like that.
