I create a class as follows:

class DoubletoHexString {

public static void main(String[] args) {

Double a = new Double(Double.NaN);

System.out.println("a: " + a.doubleValue());
System.out.println("doubletoHexString: " + Double.toHexString(a.doubleValue()));
}
}



I got compile error
DoubletoHexString.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : method toHexString (double)
location: class java.lang.Double
System.out.println("doubletoHexString: " + Double.toHexString(a.doubleValue()));


I check my spelling is correct. Can anybody tell why it's not correct?

The code is correct. In Float and Double, the toHexString method is new with Java 1.5, so I'm guessing that you are using an earlier version compiler.

Hi,Marc, you are so right. I even didn't notice that.
I study 1.5 API but run on 1.4.
