"'java[c]' is not reconized as an internal or external command" is the error i get and i have tryed a few things to fix that (i have j2se 1.5), first i updated the path variable, and only that one. then i tryed changing the dir in the command promt to the \bin and type "% javac" but no luck. i can run javas as long as there in the \bin file but that is a pain and i still can't compile them anyway. when i try to compile in the \bin file i come up with multible errors with simple commands like "system.out.println("hi");" please help
Hi, welcome to the ranch! Are you in Windows or Unix? I think you used some terms from each and that may be part of the problem. See if these exercises help. That includes a link to the Sun's Classpath page. Sun's Getting Started may help, too.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
