Hi folks ,
There is a rule in
which states that
Rule 1.Only one public class per file is allowed.
I tried compiling a file in which I had declared one class as public and other class as dedfault .I got compile error which stated above rule.
What may be the isuue ?

Most likely because you forgot the other half of that rule:
The file has to have the same name as the public class.
If you gave the file the same name as the default class, it won't compile.
Don't get me started about those stupid

Classes in source file
