When I compile my java code, it turns out that I have 13 errors. Since I am using the MS-DOS box to view these errors, I can't see the first errors because it keeps scrolling down. How can I see the complete listing?
Change the settings on the DOS Prompt. Right-click on the menu/Icon in the upper left corner and select "properties". Switch to the Layout tab and increase teh Screen Buffer Size. I always use 400 myself. Another solution is to Download TextPad (www.TextPad.com) or some other java-aware text editor. You can run javac straight from textpad, and it will produce an output file that you don't lose the top of.

Also there are command-line redirection operators, like javac MyClass.java 1 > out.txt 2>&1 This should work in Windows or Unix, it means, "compile MyClass.java, send normal output to the file "out.txt", and send errors to the same place." Joel's earlier suggestions are probably preferable, but if you need more options...
