When attempting to compile the following code, i recieved the message, 'illegal start of expression', with the line in bold, highlighted. Any ideas what that would mean???
private void go()
= "Mary had a little lamb";
token = new StringTokeizer(test); token.hasMoreTokens()
String word = token.nextToken();
System.out.println("Word = " + word);

Welcome to JavaRanch!
It generally means that there's a real error on a line before this. The most likely problem is a missing close-brace, so that this method declaration seems to appear inside the preceding method.
