hi all,

I just had a doubt.
Is it possible to run a java program line by line as in C(By pressing F5)
If so how can it be done.

Thanks in advance.

The functionality of the F5 key should have been coded into the tool to run the C code.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Several Java IDEs have a debugger which allows you to step through the code line by line. In Eclipse you can set breakpoints, run the program for debugging (Run / Debug As / Java Application).

For more about debugging in Eclipse see the documentation.
