Temperature Converter Program

Hi,
I'm just looking for some help in getting this code to compile. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Regards,
Niall
class TemperatureConverter 
{
	public static void main(String[] args) 
	{
		System.out.print("Enter temperature type. Fahrenheit [F/f], Celsius [C/c] :   ");
		String temp_unit = TextIO.getlnString();
		System.out.print("Enter the temperature: ");
		Double temp_value = TextIO.getlnDouble();
		
		if(		temp_unit.equals("f")	||	temp_unit.equals("F")	)
			System.out.println("Fahrenheit mapped to Celsius = " + covertCtoF( temp_value ) );
		else if(		temp_unit.equals("c")	||	temp_unit.equals("C")	)
			System.out.println("Fahrenheit mapped to Celsius = " + covertFtoC( temp_value ) );
		else	
			System.out.println("Enter only C/c or F/f, please try again.");
			break;
		
	}
	
	static double covertCtoF(Double temp_C)
	{
		return ( ( temp_C / 5 ) * 9 ) + 32;
	}
 
	static double covertFtoC(Double temp_F)
	{
		return ( ( temp_F - 32 )  / 9 ) * 5;
	}
}

What is TextIO- looks like a user defined class for input- should you import it...
What about Scanner class for input..

You also repeat Fahrenheit mapped to Cel.. one should be Celsuis mapped to Fahern...?

Many thanks for your reply. Done some more work & it compiles and runs ok now.
TextIO is user defined but compiled in the directory where stored so no need to import.
Well spotted F mapped to C twice.

Just one more small issue-How do I format the output to two decimal places?

if(temp_unit.equals("f")	||	temp_unit.equals("F")	)
System.out.printf("The temperature "+temp_value+" degrees Celsius is "+covertCtoF(temp_value)+" degrees Fahrenheit");
