I have recently started Java Programming with Head First Java. Now when I am compile below coding the code are not compile...
It is showing message..


public static void main(String[] args) {
int x = 5;
while ( x > 1) {
x = x -1;
if (x < 3) {
System.out.println("Small x");

After Compile get this Message:

javac: file not found:
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
use -help for a list of possible options

Please guide me what's going on here in my code?

Thanks in advance

Your Class name might not be same as the source file name. The two names must be same, please check that.

Please make sure to give full details. The code you showed looks all right, but it doesn't appear to use the ExlbSmall file anywhere in what you quoted.
