Ruby =begin not being accepted


#1

Win 7
firefox
chrome additional problem (cursor not lined up with text on code input screen
)
Tshoot:
refresh page
delete cookies

I cannot move on from multi line comments my code is as follows

=begin
As long as I am learning to code
=end

Error message
Oops, try again. It looks like you didn't include =begin. Make sure there's no space between the equals sign and the word begin!

Right hand of screen code message

(ruby): syntax error, unexpected '='
=begin
^
(ruby):1: unterminated string meets end of file
(ruby):1: syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting keyword_end


#2

Could you post a screenshot of the webpage that shows the whole webpage please?


#3

Your error message suggests that there's more code, and that this other code has a string that hasn't been closed


#4

I found a few errors had spaces before my =begin and =end but am still getting this


#5

found an additional space inserted after begin...
Thank you guys!

I had the same problem. I changed the order. I first did a multi line comment and then a single line comment and it got accepted
