Okay, when I first started trying to teach java to myself, I picked up a book called "Java: A beginners guide" by Herbert Schildt. I thought compiling was going to be as easy as c, I was of course wrong. Well through various searches I've figured out how to get javac to run by chaning the PATH variable, but it seems like it's not actually compiling my Exaple4.java file
javac: no source files
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
where possible opitions include:
blah blah (list of options)
Okay, no clue if it's compiled i think not, but then it throws an example4.html file in /demo/applets/animator, demo/applets/GraphLayout, demo/applets/WireFrame, demo/plugin/applets/animator, demo/plugin/applets/GraphLayout, and demo/plugin/applets/WireFrame
AND it throws a TableExample4.java file into demo/jfc/TableExample/src, and demo/plugin/jfc/TableExample/src.
I have no idea what is going on here, Im just so confused, and all these explanations I read are so vague. I've read some pretty great ones from the generous people here, and I thought you all might be able to help me. Because unless I can compile files I can't begin learning the language, first thing is first you know. Thanks to any who may reply.
