Could someone please help. When compiling several classes simultaneously, how do you stop the DOS screen from scrolling to see the complete error list.....ie when you have more than a page full. Help appreciated, thanks
Welcome to JavaRanch, paul! I don't think you could easily stop the command prompt window from scrolling as more text is displayed to it. You might have success redirecting the compiler errors to a text file with a command such as javac Foo.java 2> errors.txt (This works on Windows XP.) Good luck, pardner. I hope to see you 'round the Ranch!
If you're using Win9x, there isn't really much you can do. You could use a text editor like TextPad or UltraEdit and capture the output within the editor, but Win9x itself is very limited in this area.

Thanks for the replies Bipin, did you realise I meant the dos window?? Dirk tried your idea...doesn't work on win 98 using editpad. Thanks for the suggestion Very green when it comes to java Marilyn, not entirely sure I follow...Thanks for the suggestions
Hi Paul, Get TextPad here: TextPad It is a terrific Windows editor specifically for programmers. You can launch the java compiler, applet viewer and java interpreter directly from it. You will not lose any output from the compiler with it. Hope this helps, Michael Morris
