[erlang-questions] Help for a newbie...

I have just started on my Erlang journey and am struggling with a compiler
error that I am hoping someone with experience can spent 5 secs and tell me
what i'm doing wrong, as I am not very good at understanding what the
compiler is telling me. Thanks!
I am passing in a string such as "morning, 1, 2, 3" as the UserEntry and
simply want to create a variable which holds a list of the tokens. I am
getting a message from the compiler saying "syntax error before: 'case'.
AllTokens = string:tokens(UserEntry, ",").
case hd(AllTokens) of
_ -> io:fwrite("error\n")
