hi,
I read that void methods should not return any thing. But when i tried the following code, it is not giving any error.

could any body tells how the above code is compiling and running fine, though we are mentioned return statement.

Thanks.

Deepika,
"return" returns whatever is after the word return. Meaning "return 0;" returns an integer. "return;" returns what is after the word - nothing!
