What're the rules around where you put your curly braces?

Hi there!

Just a quick one from the previous lesson...

Is it necessary to put a closing curly brace on a new line? Why is it not added at the end of the last line of code, like normal braces?

if (age<13) { //Insert exit code console.printf("Sorry you must be at least 13 to use this program. \n"); System.exit(0); }

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael - Take a look at the Google Java Style Guide regarding braces:

Thanks! Much appreciated.
