    Default I keep recieving a token error, How can this be fixed ?

    All of the code I have written so far is working, except for this method. I have never heard of a token error before this. The array has to be of that size, is there a better way to set the parameters or solve this error.



    Java Code:
    public static void sortNames(String[][2] firstAndLastNames, boolean sortBasedOnFirstName){
        
    }

    Any feedback would be helpful, Thank you in advanced.

    recieving a token error
    Is the error from a Java SE class?
    Have you looked in the API doc for a description of the error?

    Please copy and paste here the full text of the error message.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Syntax error on token "2" delete this token.
    Is all the error says.

    I am checking the API docs right now

    Do what the compiler says; the compiler is right, always.

    What compiler are you using? I get a different error message with the javac command: error: ']' expected

    When I use Eclipse it gives me the token error.
    When I use Netbeans it gives me the javac command: error: ']' expected.
    either one gives me an error that makes no sense to me

    Both are right: Eclipse wants you to remove the '2' and Netbeans expected a ']' instead of the '2'. Eclipse's message is more clear here (imho).

    So if both are right, how would I set the parameters for the array if not in the method ?

    Use Eclipse's suggestion and removee the '2' in the parameter declaration.
