Software Issues? Perhaps

I copy the same code as the video into my current version of swift and get an error. I think this video was recorded with Swift 3 and my version is Swift 4. Doesn't anyone have a solution? Code is written below.

for number in 1...10 { print("times 5 is equal to") }

error given: Immutable value 'number' was never used; consider replacing with '_' or removing it.

Hi Ryan,

You are not getting an error, you are getting a warning (the yellow triangle). The difference is that a warning is triggered when the code is syntactically valid (the code compiles), but the compiler notices that something is probably not the way you want. In this case, it's letting you know that you've gone to the trouble of declaring a constant name but you never used it.

This is different from an error (the red symbol) which indicates that your code won't compile at all.

I'm guessing that for the purposes of the video, Pasan has told his version of Xcode to not show warnings (in Xcode/Preferences/General uncheck 'Show live issues').

Hope that clears everything up,
