I followed this tutorial(read point 2 and 3)1: https://blog.zeppelin.solutions/the-hitchhikers-guide-to-smart-contracts-in-ethereum-848f08001f05 to create and deploy a simple smart contract, but at this point:

$ truffle console

// get the deployed version of our contract

truffle(default)> var poe = ProofOfExistence1.deployed()

// and print its address

truffle(default)> console.log(poe.address) 0x3d3bce79cccc331e9e095e8985def13651a86004

I can't print the address.. [enter image description here]

As of recent versions of truffle deployed() now returns a promise, so try something like:

var poe;
    poe = result; 
  • Perfect! It works now..thank you! Just another (dumb) question: If I want to execute a file,instead of writing the code, line by line, in the truffle console,how do I do it?

  • Beyond the Truffle docs I don't have a good suggestion for an up-to-date tutorial but on a quick glance at the one you linked I don't think much has changed since apart from things that used to return values now returning promises. Aug 25, 2017 at 23:20
  • the tutorial at truffleframework.com/tutorials/… is pretty decent and more recent Sep 14, 2017 at 18:29
