I gave the Command prompt code to compile, and now it doesn't give me the usual "C:\Users\Mark Donner>"

Any idea why this would happen

thanks

Sounds like it might be executing your command.

How many classes are you compiling? Do you have any idea how long it would take? Can you tell us the exact command you're entering?

Are you sure that is the compiler? You may have executed an infinite loop.
