can anyone please let me know why is the following code not working fine?

public class TestFor {
public static void main(String [] args) {


signed int x = 10;
for (int y=0; y<5; y++, x--)
System.out.print(" " + x);
}
}

Welcome to JavaRanch.

The title of your post contains the answer to your question: Java does not have "signed" and "unsigned" keywords. byte, short, int and long are by definition signed.
