    Default Declaring enum problem

    Hi all, I'm trying to declare a enum type:

        public enum Month {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12};

    However whenever I try to compile, I get the following error:

    <identifier> expected

    Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong?

    I'm using BlueJ by the way.
