Hi I'm new at this and can't figure out why I get this error "void does not name a type" on lines 3,5,8,26

// _2-5 set Debounce Button
const int BUTTON=2;
const int LED=9;
boolean lastButton = LOW;
boolean currentButton = LOW;
boolean ledOn = false;

Void setup()
  pinMode (LED, OUTPUT);
  pinMode (BUTTON, INPUT);

boolean debounce(boolean last)

  boolean current = digitalRead(BUTTON);
  if (last != current)
    current = digitalRead(BUTTON);
  return current;

Void loop()
  currentButton = debounce(lastButton);
  if (lastButton == LOW && currentButton == HIGH)
    ledOn = !ledOn;

  lastButton = currentButton;
  digitalWrite(LED, ledOn);

This question came from our site for electronics and electrical engineering professionals, students, and enthusiasts.


I thing the problem is not "void does not name a type", but "Void does not name a type". Subtle difference:

Void setup()

should read:

void setup()

The same on

Void loop()

should be

void loop()

Watch those caps - C is case sensitive.
