Hi all, In Bill Brogden's Exam Cram book he gave a table 2.2 "Words reserved but not used currently." in Lesson Language Fundamentals page 17(in my book). byvalue future inner rest cast generic operator var const outer
I haven't heard of these before or haven't seen these in RHE's book or Khalid's book. Can anyone confirm me if these are included in the exam. thanks chandra! [This message has been edited by chandrashekar munukutla (edited August 01, 2001).]
"strictfp is used" means strictfp is a reserved word. Correct? I tried compiling a prog with strictfp as an identifier and it did not so I am thinking that it is a reserved word. Let me know if it is otherwise.
You must have an early printing of Exam Cram. That list of reserved words was in use in early versions of Java. Unfortunately when Sun cut a number of words out they didn't publicize the fact. That list ended up in "Java in a Nutshell" the best selling reference from O'Reilly, which is what I checked when creating that table. A correction is part of the errata for the book, on line at: http://www.lanw.com/books/errata/ Later printings got corrected. No matter which study guide you are using, better check the errata. Bill
Thanks Bill, Good to know that I have old version of Exam Cram also. But I am confused with the Book version numbering you have given. It says "On page 16<1,2,3,4>" Which indicates that it is 4th print of the book. For my book print it is 10 9 8 7 6 Which means that it is 6th printing right. I thank you for the advise to check the errata. Actually after buying some books I came to know about that. I already checked the errata for Khalid and RHE. Also checked for your book but was misleaded by numbering. Thanks Chandra!
