    Default PROBLEM: ILLEGAL START OF EXPRESSION

    I have written this code:

    package net.minecraft.src;
    import java.util.Random;
    public class WorldGenTowerOne extends WorldGenerator
    {
        public WorldGenTowerOne()
        {
        }
        public boolean generate(World world, Random rand, int i, int j, int k)
        {
    int bID = 2;  /*2 is the block id for grass, so the structure going to spawn on grass*/
            if(world.getBlockId(i, j, k) != bID || world.getBlockId(i, j + 1, k) != 0 || world.getBlockId(i + 7, j, k) != bID || world.getBlockId(i + 7, j, k + 7) != bID || world.getBlockId(i, j, k + 7) != bID || world.getBlockId(i + 7, j + 1, k) != 0 || world.getBlockId(i + 7, j + 1, k + 7) != 0 || world.getBlockId(i, j + 1, k + 7) != 0)
            {
                return false;
            }
                world.setBlock(i + 0, j + 0, k + 4, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 0, j + 0, k + 2, 109);
                world.setBlock(i + 0, j + 0, k + 0, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 0, k + 3, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 0, k + 1, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 0, k + 4, 109);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 0, k + 2, 54);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 0, k + 0, 109);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 0, k + 3, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 0, k + 1, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 4, j + 0, k + 4, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 4, j + 0, k + 2, 109);
                world.setBlock(i + 4, j + 0, k + 0, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 1, k + 3, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 1, k + 1, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 1, k + 3, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 1, k + 1, 48);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 2, k + 3, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 2, k + 2, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 2, k + 1, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 2, k + 3, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 2, k + 2, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 2, j + 2, k + 1, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 2, k + 3, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 2, k + 2, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 2, k + 1, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 0, j + 3, k + 4, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 0, j + 3, k + 0, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 3, k + 3, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 1, j + 3, k + 1, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 3, k + 3, 4);
                world.setBlock(i + 3, j + 3, k + 1, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 4, j + 3, k + 4, 98);
                world.setBlock(i + 4, j + 3, k + 0, 98);
    		int chest = Block.chect.blockID;
     
    world.setBlockWithNotify (i, j + 1, k, chest);
     
    TileEntityChest tileentitychest = (TileEntityChest)world.getBlockTileEntity(i + 2, j + 0, k + 2,);
    if (tileentitychect != null && tileentitychest.getSizeInventory() > 0) {
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Block.torchWood, 2);
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Item.Bucket, 1);
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Item.AppleGold, 1);
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Item.EnderPearl, 2);
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Item.Soup, 1);
    ItemStack itemstack = new ItemStack(Block.Pumpkin, 2);
    tileentitychect.setInventorySlotContents(0, itemstack);
    }
      return true;
      }
    }



    When I try to recompile, I get this error:

    --------------------------------------------------------
    == ERRORS FOUND ==

    src\minecraft\net\minecraft\src\WorldGenTowerOne.j ava:59: error: illegal start o
    f expression
    TileEntityChest tileentitychest = (TileEntityChest)world.getBlockTileEntity(i +
    2, j + 0, k + 2,);

    ^

    1 error
    --------------------------------------------------------


    What is the problem? All help is appreciated!

    There seems to be an extra comma after k+2. See what happens after you remove that.
