I'm trying to open a text file for input using the Eclipse IDE and I'm receiving error messages I can't resolve. Here's my code:



Eclipse flags the "String file" line as an error with the following message:


Syntax error on token ";", { expected after this token



It also flags the final } with this message:


Syntax error, insert "}" to complete ClassBody



What am I doing wrong here?

TIA!
~~Tom

You cannot just add code to a class. You have to put the code in a method. Also, Stdout is not Java. See below.

Thanks--this was an embarrassing brain fart--forgot to put it into a method. I'm actually planning on calling the resulting method from a class with a main() method elsewhere; the Stdout routine is part of the larger package this belongs to.
 
Morning came much too soon and it brought along a friend named Margarita Hangover, and a tiny ad.
