What do error messages mean?

I am new, first try with Arduino. Try to modify Blink sketch. LED blinking alternately. try to verify, get error message "exit status 1 "const does not name a type'. What is wrong? "const int kPinLed = 13;"

Could be anything.

I have not even the remotest clue... unless you post the code which give you this error

"const does not name a type’. What is wrong? “const int kPinLed = 13;”

I suspect the real problem is on an earlier line but the compiler did not actually choke until it got a bit further.

Hence the value in always posting a complete program.

Maybe a missing semi-colon.

You tried to compile just this?

 const int kPinLed = 13

gfvesley:
The code I entered was "const int kPinLed = 13"

That can't be your complete program.

Post the complete program (Second time of asking).
