    9. If this is not the case, you have syntax errors (typos) in your program that need to be fixed

    before it can be run. To do this:

    a. Scroll in the bottom window to display the first syntax error.

    b. Double-click anywhere in the line that explains the error. In the Edit window, an

    indicator will show you in which line of your program the compiler thinks your

    syntax error occurred. Read the explanation of the error and compare your typed line

    with the program listing above. The error may in this line or a line that comes beforeit. Identify and correct the error.

    10. Repeat steps 6-8 until you have corrected all your syntax errors.

    11. Run your program: Close the Compile Progress window, and from the Execute menu chose

    "Run" (or click on the second icon from the left on the second button bar).

    12. A console window will appear and your program will be running. Your program will accept

    data, and compute and display the result and the message "Press any key to continue." When

    you do, the console window will close and you will return to Dev-C++. If you want to

    execute your program again, from the "Execute" menu, choose "Run". This program should

    work fine, but usually you will find logic errors in it that will need to be corrected by

    repeated analysis, editing, compiling, and testing.

    13. When you are finished, exit Dev-C++ from the File menu.
