Error when passing 4 parameters to the Name initialize method
Seeing the video I noticed the need for four parameters in the creation of the class, but when I send the parameters, I get an error:
name.rb:23: syntax error, unexpected ',', expecting ')' name = Name.new ("Mr.", "James", "Earl", "Jones") ^ name.rb:23: syntax error, unexpected ',', expecting end-of-input ...ame = Name.new ("Mr.", "James", "Earl", "Jones")
Which confuses me, a lot - Does it have something to do with the quotations around the strings I'm sending, or am I using the wrong kind of comma? I can't figure it out on my own.
class Name def initialize(title, first_name, middle_name, last_name) @title = title @first_name = first_name @middle_name = middle_name @last_name = last_name end def title @title end def first_name @first_name end def middle_name @middle_name end def last_name @last_name end end name = Name.new ("Mr.", "James", "Earl", "Jones") puts name.title + " " + name.first_name + " " + name.middle_name + " " + name.last_name
