What does it mean when I compile a program and I get error messages like this....

"illegal start of expression"
"illegal start of type"
"<identifier> expected"
Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Obviously without seeing your code it's hard to respond, however...

These errors are typically encountered when you have either misplaced or not entered a curly brace or semi colon where one or both belong. I would double check your open and close brackets before digging too much deeper. Many times, a slew of errors can be taken care of by simply finding one syntax error.
