The languages Cϩϩ and Java both borrow a great deal of their core syntax from C. ” This is the style that Sun recommends and that we use in this book. String Literals (Strings) When you are writing Java programs (such as the preceding “hello world” program), you’ll often want to include some literal text to send to the console window as output. Programmers have traditionally referred to such text as a string because it is composed of a sequence of characters that we string together. The Java language specification uses the term string literals.
4 Procedural Decomposition Common Programming Error Not Closing a String Literal or Comment Every string literal has to have an opening quote and a closing quote, but it’s easy to forget the closing quotation mark. java:4: ')' expected } ∧ 2 errors In this case, the first error message is quite clear, including an arrow pointing at the beginning of the string literal that wasn’t closed. The second error message was caused by the first. Because the string literal was not closed, the compiler didn’t notice the right parenthesis and semicolon that appear at the end of the line.
If you still can’t figure out the error, try looking at the error’s line number and comparing the contents of that line with similar lines in other programs. You can also ask someone else, such as an instructor or lab assistant, to examine your program. println("would smell as sweet"); ∧ 1 error The odd thing about the compiler’s output is that it has listed line 4 as the cause of the problem, not line 3, where the semicolon was actually forgotten. This is because the compiler is looking forward for a semicolon and isn’t upset until it finds something that isn’t a semicolon, which it does when it reaches line 4.
