I am totaly new to java and no pretty much nothing. I was doing a tutorial the Hello World one as probably every one has. I have a little probelm in I am clueless on how to compile the java file so that I can run it.
I think the problem lies in that every bit of info I find has to do with pc and I am doing this on a mac Panther 10.3
If any one could point me in the rite direction it would help and well I can move from first base.
Open command line interpreter and try to type javac and press enter. If you get something like commend not found, that means that you maybe don't have java development kit installed. Otherwise go to the directory with your sources and type javac yourfilename.java resolve erros and then java yourfilename
I believe we also have a forum dedicated to mac here.
BTW when you get to command line, unix instructions should apply.
