    Default Re: For loop error

    You have an extra "=" in the for loop. Should be "!=" not "!=="


    Here is the Java Docs for Operators: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...operators.html

    There are textbooks and documents online that explain these language details that you can use as handy references rather than guessing.
