something sort of interesting

Hey, I recently added a save/load feature to my program and because of it... I figured out something odd about my programs. Whenever I use outside stuff in my program (images, sounds) I had to enter the direct address. However, now that I have the save feature, I discovered that my program places all files into the j2sdk1.4.1_03
folder and reads all files from there. So, if I want to read a file without its direct address, I must place it in that folder. Is there a way I can make the compiler (I use bluej) read and load files from my folder elsewhere on the computer? Thanks a lot.

Matt, there's something about this in the Bluej mail list archives, or on the http://www.bluej.org/ site somewhere (Tips perhaps). I don't have time at the moment to look, but that doesn't stop you doing so.
In fact I think it's here , but I'm not sure. If not you better take a look in the mailing archive.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
