This is a beginner section, right? Well if it is, then here is my beginner's question. In a java code (as follows) why Keyboard.readInt() gets a "cannot resolve symbol" error message? Thanks in advance to all who answers.

Java code:

class Temperature {
public static void main (String[] args) {
int temperature;

System.out.print("Please type in the temprature you wish to convert (deg F): ");
temperature = Keyboard.readInt();
System.out.print(" deg F is ");
System.out.print((5.0 * (temperature - 32.0)) / 9.0);
System.out.println(" deg C ");

did you implement a Keyboard class (or maybe added external
package)?? Cause in standard J2SE there this class doesn't exist.
Maybe this is why he cannot resolve symbol. But it would be helpful
if you post the complete exception.

Welcome to JavaRanch "R. S."
Your display name doesn't quite fit the famous JavaRanch naming policy. Could you please take a minute to change your display name to show 2 names, preferably your real name. (It's all about maintaining our professional image - don't let the one-eyed moose fool you!).
Thanks and hope you'll be visiting the ranch often,

I've had the same class as you, or atleast used the file, I think you are using.
You need to make sure you have the file, and the file in the same directory and it should work.
I compiled the code and it ran fine for me, though you may want to shorten the end output to perhaps 2 decimals, using the abilities of Keyboard. If you need more help, just ask.
