    Default Java Noob needs help!

    Hello Java Programmers!
    I'm having a bit of trouble with one of my first java scripts! (i am a noob)
    the error i've been getting is "reached end of file while parsing"
    and my script is this Quote

    //Generated using EASYMC. EasyModCreator.tk
    package net.minecraft.src;
    import java.util.Random;
    public class mod_obbypickaxe extends BaseMod
    {

    public void load()
    {

    //This is our to-do list.
    addNames();
    setTextures();
    addRecipes();

    }

    public String getVersion()
    {
    return "V1";
    }

    public void addNames();
    {
    ModLoader.AddName(obbypickaxe, "obbypickaxe ");
    }


    public void setTextures()
    {
    obbypickaxe.iconIndex = ModLoader.addOverride("/gui/items.png", "obbypick.png");
    }


    public void addRecipes()
    {
    ModLoader.addRecipe(new ItemStack(obbypick, 1), new Object[] {
    "OOO", " D ", " D ",Character.valueOf('O'), Item.Obsidian, Character.valueOf("D"), Item.Obsidian
    });
    //You can go to the forums and look at my tutorial and the above code will make much more sense!
    }

    public static final Item obbypickaxe = new ItemPickaxe(5555, EnumToolMaterial.EMERALD).setItemName("obbypickaxe ");

    Unquote
    i've looked around and it would seem i needed a } to close it but i have tried to add
    that at the end... which ends up in more errors!

    So thanks in advance to any replys!

    and if anyone has any getting started tips, i will gladly take any advise!

    Thanks for your time
    Justin

    It's a bit hard to tell because the code isn't formatted, but I don't think the curly braces match. Specifically, perhaps there's a } missing at the end (to finish the class definition).

    If you're starting to learn Java I don't think wrestling with autogenerated code is the way to go. Google "java tutorial" to find Oracle's very comprehensive introduction to the language. In a hurry to get to the fun stuff? Don't be! But I'm showing my age... When the finish line comes into sight you do wonder what all the hurry was about.

    When you add the }, what are your errors?
    The reason why you see different (more, but could have been less) errors when you add the } is because the IDE you are using can "see the greater picture" with the braces all in place. From there things could look perfect, or horrible, but different either way.
    The class you posted extends BaseMod, and many other classes are used in this code, do you have all of those classes?
