Hello World problem
 
I have entered the Hello World file correctly but I am told I am missing a semicolon in line 1 when I attempt to run the file.

Here is my script:

https://script.google.com/d/1Agf_C5E...bcyuMo9iI/edit

Anyone able to help me understand where exactly I have to put the semi colon at?

Thank you in advance
John Dildy

Here's what I see there:

function myFunction() {

}

That looks like JavaScript, not Java. They are very different things.
Which are you actually trying to use?

Assuming it's JavaScript, you have an empty function. It looks to me
like it should run, but it wouldn't do anything. How did you try to
run it?

If you are trying to use JavaScript, this conversation should move to
comp.lang.javascript

see http://mindprod.com/jgloss/helloworld.html if you want to write a
HelloWorld in Java.

I don't think that is what you want to do, however. You have Java
confused with some other language.

Re: Hello World problem
 
I have made changes to the project and I don't see the empty Javascript function. However, I am trying to use Java.

Does anyone know if there is a beginner's group on google about Java and/or Javascript. I see to be contacting people that are way a way's from the HelloWorld.java

comp.lang.java.help may be a bit more beginner friendly than
comp.lang.java.programmer!

comp.lang.javascript sounds as if it is a good place for
JavaScript, but I have never read it.

Java is not related to Javascript. As you have posted on

https://script.google.com/d/1Agf_C5E...bcyuMo9iI/edit

your project files end with .js, which is Javascript, and not .java, which
is Java. Your code also contains "function myFunction()", which is a
Javascript function, and not a Java method.

I'm afraid you really are completely in the wrong place here. Despite the
strange similarity in name, Java and Javascript really are not related AT
ALL. This isn't like Basic and Visual Basic, two versions of the same
language, Java and Javascript are as unrelated as Georgia, USA and Georgia,
the country next to Russia.

People here are of course perfectly capable of "Hello World" examples, but
only in the language of this newsgroup - which is Java. We don't know
anything at all about Javascript (other than by random chance).

That being said, even people in a Javascript help group won't be able to
help you if you ignore peoples replies. Multiple people have asked you
questions about your attempted "Hello World" example, yet you have answered
none. If you are looking for mind readers, you might have to go look for a
different newsgroup alltogether.

Liebe Gruesse,
Joerg

Re: Hello World problem
 
For some reason the Google Script is messing with my file which I clearly classified it as .java instead of .js (javascript)

I have done the same with eclipse and I have gotten the right output in the HelloWorld.java file.

Thank you for giving some information out.

That's because Google Script is a Javascript scripting language.

Hm.

Dislike of beginners or narrow definition of on topic?

I have not read it myself but Professional JavaScript for Web Developers
from Wrox get good reviews and I have good experience with their
Professional Xxxxxxx books.

And ECMA-262 is not hard to read. It is a lot easier than JLS.

Runtime environment is a bit more tricky, because it somewhat
depends on the runtime.

:-)

Old IE, new IE, FF, Chrome, node.js etc. are not identical.
