non compiling classes

I have a program that imports 3 classes from separate files. I can't compile the classes separately because of the way they relate. I'm suppose to be able to compile the program that imports them which then would compile the other classes, at least that is how I understand it. However, that doesn't seem to be working? I'm using textpad. Is there a way I should be compiling all these files so that it will actually work.

I had a similar problem recently while I was compiling within TextPad. I suggest that you try to compile from the command line. If you still have a problem, please post again.
