    Default Re: unclosed string literal

    If you Google'd the exception, you would have found the problem in a matter of seconds. Oh well
    As it's a small matter, when you want to span the print statement over multiple lines, you must close the String, and concatenate it with another. E.g:
    		System.out.print("\" To be or not to be" +
    				"\nthat's the question\"");
