    Default cannot find symbol - error message

    Hello,

    I have been trying to figure out why my code won't compile. Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    I keep getting the following error message:

    cannot find symbol -- method PrintIn(java.lang.String) with the following line highlighted:
    System.out.printIn("Found " + i + " at " +

    Here is the whole code:

    public class BinarySearch
    {
        public static final int NOT_FOUND = -1;
        public static int binarySearch (Integer[] a, int x)
        {
            int low=0;
            int high = a.length - 1;
            int mid;
            while (low <=high)
            {
                mid = (low + high) / 2;
                if (a[mid].compareTo(x)<0)
                    low = mid + 1;
                else if (a[mid].compareTo(x) > 0)
                    high = mid - 1;
                else
                    return mid;
                }
                return NOT_FOUND;
            }
     
            public static void main(String[] args)
            {
                int SIZE = 8;
                Integer[] a = new Integer[ SIZE ];
                for (int i=0; i<SIZE; i++)
                a[i] = new Integer(i * 2);
                for (int i=0; i<SIZE*2; i++)
                    System.out.printIn("Found " + i + " at " + 
                    binarySearch(a, new Integer(i)));
        }
    }

    So frustrating. The line below should be a lower-case 'L' as in 'line' rather than a capital 'I' as in "Inches." Writing your code in a font that clearly shows the differences is helpful.

    System.out.printIn("Found " + i + " at " +
