Workspace is not updating with new additions to code.

In this section, I added the console.readLine() method code to the existing code to that point in the workspace; however the console continues to run the prior, erased code for firstName instead of the readLine() method...I closed the workspace and re-opened it, but same thing...also did clear command in console.

Did you save the file before compiling? If there's a red dot in any of your file tabs, you forgot to save it.

Usually, if I run into this issue, it's because I forgot to save something.

Thank you Bryanna, I probably did not save, so I will look out for this going forward. :)

I meant to say, I probably did not save in fact.
