The code won't compile…

A developer pensively scratching her head while reviewing code is a sign that it won't compile! You must resign yourself to such situations and not be nervous. Here's some practice: The program reads in two file names. It copies the first file to the location specified by the second file name. And yes, the program doesn't work. Fix the mistake.

l could not 'solve' this task. Even when I downloaded the solution, it took me a while to see what is going on. Do not think, just observe. There is a beginner's typo in the while loop. Really something veeery basic!

Took me ages to see the typo in the while loop. IntelliJ just ignored it!!

The content of the source file should be assigned to InputSteeam, and the content of the destination file should be assigned to OutputStream. There's a typo in the while loop. You may leave the "Input data" panel empty.

Hah. Before you panic and think "OMG I don't know this", take a deep breath in and realize you are studying Java syntax(hint here: punctuation is important, and IDE doesn't always spot possible syntax errors ) and although you are learning Java, you are still learning the logic of programming(hint 2: you take something (file content) and move it from source(input) to destination(output).

closely check the while loop
