You need to specify the class, not the file where the class is in.

Open the file, and note the package that the StdDraw class is in. Let's say that it's in some.package, then import via...

import some.package.StdDraw;

Just change some.package to the actual package that StdDraw is in.

A couple more points....

First, with Eclipse it is easier than that -- you don't need to open the file. Eclipse will list the package that the java file is in via the package explorer.

Second, if the class that you want to import is in a different project, don't forget to have your project refer to the other project.
