Bought the book at amazon few weeks ago and just started reading.

There's however code sample which should work on scala 2.10 but not working on console. Here's the full log on console:

play! 2.1.2 (using Java 1.7.0_21 and Scala 2.10.0),

> Type "help play" or "license" for more information.
> Type "exit" or use Ctrl+D to leave this console.

[MyProject] $ var willKnowLater:String = _
[error] Not a valid key: var (similar: run, target)
[error] var willKnowLater:String = _
[error] ^
[MyProject] $

Any ideas why this is not working as I was very excited about testing re-factoring my code and using this.

Re: 2.2.2 Defining variables (page 29) - Incorrect code sample
wait you are trying this out in sbt console. You probably have figured out already. If its sbt/play prompt you need to type in console and then try the scala statement out.
