Folks, my wotking directory is C:\java

All my programs are held in sub-directories inside this folder.

For ther code listed below, I created a folder called MyPack, ie


The code below:-

Gives me the following error when I compile it:-": Package C:\Java\MyPack\ stated in source MyPack does not match directory C:\Java\MyPack\ at line 2, column 9

Can anybody explain why? is in the directory structire c:\java\MyPack

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Uh - did you try saying "public class AccountBalance"?

There might be other problems, but that's the first thing I'd try...

'Hope that helps .. PSM

You should compile this from the directory C:\Java:

C:\> cd Java
C:\Java> javac MyPack\
