Unable to run program in Eclipse

Hi,

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?

Thanks,

Angie

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