Has my mental freezer been unplugged overnight? :


At the command prompt with version 1.4.2:


Output: " As of release 1.4, assert is a keyword and may not be used as an identifier...."

It might solve your problem to enable assertions on the command line. I found this info on

http://www.javaemerald.com/javamaster/assert.html

so maybe give it a try.

Thanks for the reply Rachel, I think that only matters at runtime. I found my mistake. I somehow managed to get my assertion outside my method body. Compiler didn't like it. Mental powercut!

Regards,
Ken
