    Default can anyone explain this?

    a while ago.. i was coding a program , editing it, compiling it. and suddenly the electricity went out..
    then it came back.. and then I continued coding the program again and the electricity went out again..

    after a few hours.. I saw one of the .java files in my package indicating that there was an error..
    i checked it out.. but theres nothing wrong.. so what I did is I copied that .java file(I didnt change anything) and then pasted it in another blank file.. then the error disappeared..(it compiled normlaly)

    and the program's code that I was editing was corrupted and became a series of square characters..
    (a character that will be made by pressing 'ctrl + backspace' )

    what happened to my IDE?
    will I have any future problem regarding this matter?
    coz i have lots of exercises in my files.. and if woud i have any future errors..OH GOD.. im gonna edit it all.
    I was bothered by that problem that the last program's code that i was editing became a series of
    square characters.(ctrl + backspace)

    Are you using Eclipse? Yeah, I have that problem too sometimes. It's nothing serious, it happens because of the way Eclipse tracks errors/builds. If you do a clean build, it should get rid of all the errors.

    Yeah, you can select Project -> Clean in the menu and clean that specific project and it will remove all errors on it.

    Eclipse is a full blown IDE for developing in C++, Java, PHP or whatever language you fancy really. Have a look at Eclipse.org home
