    I am new to Java and need to know how to correct this function call parameter passing compiling error. Any ideas?

    List.java compiles and here is the code. //---------------------------------------------------------------------------- // List.java //---------------------------------------------------------------------------- class List { private class Node { int col; double val; Node next, prev;

          Node (int c, double v) { col = c; val = v; next = prev = null; } 
    
          public String toString() { 
             return String.format (" (%2d, %5.2f)", col, val); 
          } 
    
          public boolean equals(Node E) { return (this.val == E.val); } 
          } 
    
       private Node front, back, current; 
       private int row, length; 
    
       List(int r) { front = back = current = null; row = r; length = 0; } 
    
       void insertAfterLast(Node N) 
       {  Node node = new Node(N.col, N.val); 
    
          if ( this.length == 0 ) 
          { this.front = this.back = node; 
          }else { 
             node.prev = this.back; 
             this.back.next = node; 
             this.back = node; 
             this.current = node; 
          } 
          this.length++; 
       } 
    
       public String toString() 
       {  String str = ""; 
          for(Node N = front; N != null;  N = N.next) 
          {  if ( N == front ) { str = String.format ("%3d:", row); } 
             str += N.toString() + (N.next==null?"\n":""); 
          } 
          return str; 
       } 
    }
    

    ListTest.Java does not compile. Here are the error and code.
