What if I have compiler errors?

If you have compiler errors, click the mouse in the window at the bottom of your screen. If necessary scroll to the top of this window to see your first error message. Click on the error message. It will be highlighted. Double Click on the message. The statement corresponding to the error message will be preceded by a blue arrow in the coding window. In this case I simply typed ct instead of cout. Return to the coding window and correct the error. Recompile the program.
