Hi, why there is no compile error at line 1?

That wont qualify for an unreachable statement because the finally block always runs after the try block completes. Lets say for some reason your infinite loop fails after sometime because you did something like this...

The compiler thinks since the try might fail for some reason i am gonna let this guy get away with this.

it doesnt give a compilation error saying that its not reachable because it is something to do with the logic of the program. compiler wont check whether a code is reachable by checking the logic of the program...
