    Rules for how the language is to be used and what is legal.

    Why do I get the feeling this isn't what he meant to ask?

    Here's a definition from FODOC

    This is correct syntax for C++, but incorrect syntax for C, or BASIC:
    cout << "Hello World" << endl; // Display Hello World

    This is correct syntax for BASIC, but incorrect for C++:
    PRINT "Hello World" ' Display Hello World

    If your program has a syntax error, it won't compile, because the compiler can't understand the code. Other errors (such as logical errors) may allow the program to compile, but the program may not run as expected (bugs).

    Or, a tax on tobacco or alcohol!

    Suggestion: Your title should have said "syntax" - see the board guidelines & hints.
