Hey guys, keep going from error to error with this

This is what its complaining about: error: cannot find symbol
public static void main(string[]args);
symbol: class string
location: class Person error: missing method body, or declare abstract
public static void main(string[]args);
^ error: incompatible types
required: int
found: String error: cannot find symbol
System.out.printin("Your name is "+name +"and you're "
symbol: method printin(String)
location: variable out of type PrintStream
4 errors

caveat:you cant call non-static things from static stuff without new stuff.

*i like your combination of old whitesmith and recent famous allman indent though...

1. What is the brace before your println() statement for?
2. What is: 'public static void main(string[]args);'? And before you answer "a main() method declaration", look again, because it isn't (at least not what you think it is).


Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

another hint...

in java, there is a difference between 'a' and 'A', 'b' and B', 'c' and 'C'...all the way up.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

1) You are declaring name as a int but using it as a string.
2) The braces before the system.out.println are nt required.
3) If you are declaring the variables outside main and using them in main, then you should make the variables as static.
4) string[] args should be String[] args

Hope this will help you compile the code and run the same.
