    Default Re: error

    The for loop where the error occurs is incorrect syntax - there is no initialization/termination/increment. Suggested reading: The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)

    For future reference, please wrap your code in the code tags
