    Default Errors In Java

    I keep getting these 8220 and 8221 error codes in Java and apparently, the 8220 errors are caused by smart quotes in my word processor, but I don't know how to disable them. I use Apache Openoffice 4.0 or near.

    Thanks.

    Your problem seems very vague. Do you have a question?

    There should be a Save As . . . option to save the files as plain text which should eliminate smart quotes. I don't use Open Office so don't know if you'll have to do that each time or just once.

    There are several open source options for Programmer's Editors or Java IDEs that are significantly superior to Open Office. I don't want to start another discussion on the best one of those, so search here for existing threads or Google it.
