    Hi,

    I am trying to understand Life time of a variable by writing a below program. But unable to compile it as it is throwing some error. please go through below for code snippet and error as follows,

    // Understanding Lifetime of a variable.
     
    class LifeTime {
     
    public static void main(String args[]) {
     
    int x;
     
    for(x = 0; x <3 ; x++) {
     
    int y = -1; // y is initialized each time block is entered
     
    System.out.Println("y is: " + y); // this always prints -1
     
    y = 100;
     
    System.out.println("y is now: " + y); 
            }
     
         }
     
    }

    Avoid posting pictures, screenshots, etc., if at all possible. They're just too hard to read - but not impossible. You should be able to bring up a menu that allows copying all or selected text by right clicking or something.

    You have a typo which is clearly indicated by the error message. Java is case sensitive.

    Hi,

    i have one more question. When i was searching fix for the error, someone has suggested that, if we have either Netbean or Eclipse IDE installed, it would be easy to catch these type of errors. Hence, i have installed Eclipse IDE and tried to run the some of my tiny Java programs. I am able to import the Java program into IDE but unable to run it as it is throwing some error.
    Please help me to understand, IDE is meant for running Java as a project or even i can run small programs too.....
    By the way i like the way you guys teaches, by not giving direct answer, instead prompting the learners to find a solution on their own by giving a clue.....

    An IDE is an Integrated Development Environment - it is software
    that houses an editor to write source code, a compiler to translate
    the code into machine language, and a debugger to help you step
    in and out of the code. The size of the source file you write or import
    to the editor makes little difference. As long as the syntax is correct,
    it will execute.

    I am able to import the Java program into IDE but unable to run it as it is throwing some error.
    Post the complete and exact text of error message you want help with. We can't help you fix "some error."
