Java Question

"Variable out of type PrintStream" error occured

I'm starting to learn Java and have encountered some issues.

public class Hello {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.printIn("Hello");
}
}


Using Notepad++. have the SDK. to compile I used
javac Hello.java
, but it resulted with the following error:


Symbol: method PrintIn

Location: Variable out of type PrintStream

Answer

Your error is just a typo, happens even to the best of us:

Use a lowercase 'L' instead of an uppercase 'I'; in some IDE's the two look very analogous!

System.out.println("Hello");

Remember: println() stands for "print line".

P.S. I would recommend a better IDE software such as NetBeans or Eclipse. Both of these catch syntax errors so you don't have to worry.
