Unable to run program in Eclipse


When I attempt to run TreeStory.java in Eclipse, I get the following error: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException at TreeStory.main(TreeStory.java:17)

I am not sure how to make this code work in an editor, outside of the Treehouse workspace. Can someone help?

you can't use console.printf in Eclipse you have to use System.out.println and scanner instead

Thank you, Fahad. I will try that. I appreciate your help!
