Could somebody please clarify why any modifier other than public in the following pgm results in compile error...
Are those modifiers (private, protected, friendly(no-modifer)) applicable only to methods and variables not classes?
//Fred.java
public class Fred {
private int x = 0;
private Fred (int xval) {
x = xval;
}
}

Those modifiers that you mentioned can only be applied to methods, members and inner-classes (excluding the friendly modifier, which can be applied to anything)
