    Default Finding bug and correcting it

    print the larger number first
    there is one bug


    public void bug(int a, int b)
    {

    int first = a ;
    int second = b;
    int temp = 0;
    if (a>b)
    {
    temp = a;
    first = b;
    second = a;
    }
    System.err.println(first + "" + second) ;

    }

    How would I be able to test this in netbeans?

    Default Re: Finding bug and correcting it

    I can't run it. My professor just gave me that piece of code and said to find the bug. If I can run it I'll be able to figure it maybe but I don't know how to make the class so i can run it. I have something like this
    Java Code:
    public class bug {
    
        public static void main(String[] args) {
           public void bug(int a, int b)
    {
    
    int first = a ;
    int second = b;
    int temp = 0;
    if (a>b)
    {
    temp = a;
    first = b;
    second = a; 
    }
    System.err.println(first + "" + second) ; 
    
    }
        }
    But it says illegal start of expression on the line where public void bug(int a, int b) is located.
    What is actually meant by print the larger number first?

    Methods can't be inside other methods.

    You don't need to run it.
    Step through it with a piece of paper.
    Assume it is called with a=4 and b=3.
    See what result you end up with.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
