=begin and =end not working


#1

So i'm on the 16th section of Ruby and I can't go further. I keep getting the error code
"oops it looks like you didn't include =begin. Make sure there's no spaces between the equals sign and the word begin"

However this is my code:

=begin
my code does 
not work
=end

@zystvan, please help

Hey Lily,

Thanks for creating this so we don't have to go off-topic over on the other place!

Your code worked fine for me, so I suggest refreshing the page or switching browsers.
One thing you'll need to make sure of is that =begin starts on the very first position in the line - so, this won't work:

  =begin
my code does 
not work
=end

When I tested, that seemed like it might be what's causing your error, but I'm not entirely sure.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you're still running into trouble!
