Hey everyone, Im a brand new java noob. I need to learn java, oracle, and dba in about 4 monthes. Im copying code using the Head First java book and some introductory stuff from the internet. When its time to compile I may get a few fixable errors except for the system.out.printIn on all of my .java files it looks like:

cannot find symbol
symbol: method printIn(java.lang.String)
location: class java io.PrintStream
System.out.printIn ("blahblahblah");
^
I'm using notepad as my text editor and Windows 7 with the JAVA_HOME and Path, both under system, pointing to the bin file. and my .java files are in a different directory(c:\javastuff). What am I doing wrong? Also if anyone can recommend any introductory level resources for the things i need to learn I would be interested, so I can start making the big bucks. Thank you

Don't you hate those fonts which make "I" look the same as "l"? Maybe they're nice for publishing a novel but definitely not recommended for programming!

it's not System.out.printIn line it's System.out.println NO I try a lowercase L..

Why don't you use Notepad++ the program will help you out also it's multi language in the program in java, javascript, ruby, html, xhtml, c, c#, c++, and others....


EDIT:

You can't learn everything about java in 4 months it's not done and it can't it's so much for you to learn it's not even funny. There is tons of stuff for beginner advanced and expert also master i call it...
