    Question help w/ Eclipse needed - errors w/ curly braces and ;

    I am sorry if i have posted this in the wrong section, but I'm new here and this seemed the most logical place to me.
    I am very new to programming, and to the Eclipse environment. I have had this problem before, and am having it now with Eclipse that it will not accept my curly braces, and sometimes my ;.
    It has an error saying it expects } to complete method body, or { expected after this token. I don't have the specifics on the ;, but it gets flagged too. As far as I can tell I have the punctuation in the correct place, but it will not run. It will also pop up an error periodically saying the default setting have changed and ask if I would like to retrieve the default settings or ignore. I don't know that I've made any changes, so I restore the defaults, and then my auto-corrections seem to work better. Do you think I need to re-download the program? I am running version 3.6.0.
    Here is my code if you want to double check me... maybe I am crazy, or really not doing as well as I thought I was. I've indicated the areas where errors are with // to the right side of the lines its occuring.

     
    public class Exercise41 extends CashRegister {
     
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {       // get error here for {
     
     
    			private static final double QUARTER_VALUE = 0.25; // declare constant
    			private static final double DIME_VALUE = 0.10; // declare constant
    			private static final double NICKEL_VALUE = 0.05;//declares constant
    			private static final double PENNY_VALUE = 0.001; // declares constant
    	}
     
    		public class CashRegister {    // get error here for }
    			this.CashRegister = new CashRegister();
    			register.recordPurchase(20.37);
    			register.enterDollars(20);
    			register.enterQuarters(2);
    			System.out.println("Change: " + register.GiveChange());
    			System.out.prinln("Expected: 0.13");
    		}
     
    	}

    You have quite a few syntax errors in your code.
    public class Exercise41 extends CashRegister//extending an inner class of itself?
    ....
    this.CashRegister = new CashRegister();//where is the variable? What is 'this' referring to?
    ....
    register.recordPurchase(20.37);//Where are these methods defined?
    register.enterDollars(20);
    register.enterQuarters(2);
    //static variables declared inside a method?

    Ah copeg just beat me to it. I was going to say the same thing..

    This isn't an Eclipse error. Eclipse is your friend

    I think you need to start over with this. Let us know where you need help...

    Don't forget the typo error here:

    System.out.prinln("Expected: 0.13");

    Should be:

    System.out.println("Expected: 0.13");
