Okay, so i am really new to Java. I am teaching myself and i cannot figure out how to set my PATH. I am using Head First Java and would really appreciate some help on where and how to insert the % javac on my Mac.
But for future reference for setting OS environment variables. (this includes PATH)
Mac OS is based on Unix, so the way you do environment variables are different from windows. You can use your .profile file in your user's home directory, or you can create them directly on the command line for the length that the terminal window is open.
