hi ,

I have this error when passing through the exercise:

Program.cs(9,7): error CS8370: Feature ‘static local functions’ is not available in C# 7.3. Please use language version 8.0 or greater. [/home/ccuser/workspace/csharp-define-a-method/c-sharp-hello-world-run-some-c-sharp.csproj]

Can you help please ?



I had the same, had to define my method outside of Main method.

I was stuck too so I had to call my methods at main() so that it worked.
Here is my code:

using System; namespace DefineAMethod { class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { VisitPlanets(); } static void VisitPlanets() { Console.WriteLine("You visited many new planets..."); } } }
