    Default Programming noob here, need help!

    I'm practicing programming because I'm in a Computer Science class at my high school and I'm a complete noob, we got our first assignment to assign int and double values to variables and put the variables together to find the sum of them and I have no idea where to start.

    Anyway, I downloaded JCreator LE and I got it all set up and I can't even make a program that can say my name D:
    This is what I got so far

    String name;
    System.out.print("imput your name: ");
    System.out.println("Welcome, +name+");

    the -> is where I'm having my problem, what do I do?

    what do I do
    You seemed to have only posted part of your code. The definition for the in variable is missing.

    Please post all of your code and put it in code tags. Here's how to use code tags: Java Forums - BB Code List
