In order to understand what the full Ethereum code can do for building cryptocurrencies I followed all the instructions on the Ethereum site and pasted them in solidity contract source code field. I get the error: Could not compile source code. Function, variable, struct or modifier declaration expected. contract token { / Public variables of the token /^

and in the line contract token { / Public variables of the token / lights up red. Where do I get the public variables of the code? Is that not something that is available after deployment?

I think that the code isn't compiling for a couple of reasons:

The contract tokenRecipient is defined twice


contract tokenRecipient { function receiveApproval(address from, uint256 value, address token, bytes extraData); }

There are some missing closing braces.

This compiles:



    pragma solidity ^0.4.13;

contract tokenRecipient { function receiveApproval(address _from, uint256 _value, address _token, bytes _extraData); }

contract owned {
      address public owner;
