This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
As I started writing readme.txt file, I had a question on how detailed we need to go on writing the instructions to run the program. Specially about setting classpath in Unix. The command to set classpath may differ depending on the type of shell. For example, in ksh and sh, export CLASSPATH=<name and path of the jar file> will work, but in csh, the command would be set CLASSPATH=<name and path of the jar file> Do we need to include instructions for different shells in Unix environment ? Anyone please comment !!!
I dont think you need to do too much as far as this goes. I just gave an example for two different ones(RH7.2 + W2K) and then below it put something like "consult your OS docs for more info on setting user/system variables" Dont worry about it too much

i don't think you need to tell how to set up on unix. i just told them i used only win2000 as dev and test environment, and use windows commands to set up. everything is ok as indicated in the result (147/155)
