Hello,
this question comes from JQPlus:

Consider the following two java files in /home/user directory:

//file A.java

package com.enthu;

class A

{

}



//file B.java

package com.foo;

class B

{

}



The files are compiled using the following command line:



javac -d /home *.java



Where will the class files go?


The answer they give is:
"A.class in /home/com/enthu and B.class in /home/com/foo"

but I don't see why the A.java and B.java files are supposed to be visible to the compiler as the path is set to /home and not /home/user ?

Thanks,
Justyna Wozniak

The path specified with -d simply indicates where the .class will be placed. It does not specify where the .java files are.
