Hi

I have a question.

what's the return type in this code?

Is it setDate?

public void setDate(int day, int month, int year)

(void) ==> Nothing is returned.  If you think in terms of subs and functions, this would be a sub.

Subroutines are invoked for their 'behaviour' [or 'side effect'], whereas functions are invoked, so that the invokation results in some 'value' - the function is resolved to some value that is then used further in an expression.
