It is actually pretty easy to spot, but instead of telling you right away, I recommend that you start here....

at homenetwork.bkr.training.ChopLineNumbers.main(ChopLineNumbers.java:54)


Generally, by the time the compiler figures out that the braces are all screwed up, it is past the point of the error.... So... I recommend that you start at line 54, and work backwards, looking for out-of-place braces.

And BTW....



Go back and recompile your program. And use the error message from the compiler. This error message is caused by the IDE, when the IDE is telling you that your program has errors, and would you like to run it anyway.... and you said yes.... NEVER run a program that has compile errors.
