// It only executes the System.out.println("Enter Employee's Monthly Salary: "); salary=Double.parseDouble(input.readLine());

// Enter Employee's Monthly Salary:

@lloydsbackyard

I dont know what you are talking about. When I ran your code, it worked perfectly:-

stephen@xxx:~/Development/java> javac bonus.java
stephen@xxx:~/Development/java> java bonus
Enter Employee's Monthly Salary:
6000
The bonus is 6000
stephen@xxx:~/Development/java>

Also just to inform you the code that you pasted contains an extra "}".
And from the next time if put code in your post, please use code tags, for java code it is as simple as using:-
[code=java] and [/code] before and after your code respectively.

Hi James, you have to use the noparse tags around the code tags like this:-

[noparse] [code=xyz]

[/code]


[/noparse]

In fact check this post by John A for an even better option.

You can check the entire vB Code list here

Well, are you entering anything after that prompt?

It is now running it contains extra }...thanks problem solved!

Ok thanks......

According to your comments it was outputting the prompt but wasn't running any further, but if this was the problem then it wasn't even compiling, and so wasn't running at all. So, either you weren't telling the truth then, or you are not telling the truth now. Which is it?

I say this only because if you want good help you need to provide accurate information.
