Hi Enes,

what is the name of the class?

The terminal syntax should be "javac classname.java && java classname"

  • "classname" need to be exact like your name of the class in the code
  • upper or lowercase need to be correct

Could you paste your code ?


import java.io.Console;

public class M_String { public static void main (String args []) { Console cons = System.console(); String name = cons.readLine("What is your name ? "); cons.printf(" I'm %s ! \n", name); cons.printf("%s is coding in Java !\n",name); } }

I saved it like required M_String.html and when i wanna compile it i type as required javac M_String.java but it shows me that error.
