    Question I am making a silly mistake but I cant find where! PLEASE HELP!

    SOLVED

    The error I get is: testings.java:28: ';' expected
    System.out.print(occurs('a',"hello"))


    The code:


    public class testings {

    public static boolean occurs(char c, String s) {
    boolean to_return = false;
    while(true) {
    if(s.equals("")) return to_return;
    // s is not the empty string
    char c2 = s.charAt(0);
    System.out.print("c2 is "+c2);
    System.out.print("c is "+c);
    if(c==c2) { to_return = true; }
    s=s.substring(1);

    return to_return;

    }

    }
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.print(occurs('a',"hello"))
    }

    }

    Hello akmi5!
    As your compiler says:
    ';' expected. You have forgotten to put a semicolon(;) after your statement ( System.out.print(occurs('a',"hello")) ).

    Hello akmi5!
    As the compiler says that expected
    System.out.println(occurs('a',"hello"));
    In this line you have forgot to put semi colon
