    Default changing for loop to while statement..

    Hello again,
    I am having trouble doing a simple exercise changing a for loop to a while statement, it works fine in the for loop but in the while statement it just prints out 10(it is supposed to count to 0 and print liftoff). Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks

    public void run() {
    		    int i = 10;	
    			while (i>=1) {
    		    println(+i+"...");
    			i--;
    			}
    			println("liftoff...");
     
     
     
    	}

    Are there any compiler errors?
    Where and what is the definition for the println() method?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Because he is using third party Java libraries, the definition of println is stored in the ACM libraries
    within

    import acm.program.*;
