Either nobody in the world from the myriad of forums and discussion boards I have been to knows how to do this, (which seems unlikely, as this does not seem a complicated procedure) or none of those people know how to answer a question concisely and in a straightforward way.
I want any answer to be in very simple step-by-step instruction format. I am asking you to treat me like I am stupid, please.
1. I have a file called 'Encryptor.java' that I made.
2. I put 'Encryptor.java' into a directory/folder called 'tools'
3. I have another file called 'encryptorTest.java'
4. 'encryptorTest.java' has a line of code 'import tools.Encryptor;'
5. Later in the file it says, ' Encryptor e1 = new Encryptor()'. This line also gives me an error.
The preceding line gives an error upon compilation. How do I modify this program so that it runs as intended, allowing the programmer to declare a variable of type 'Encryptor' in the file 'encryptorTest' with the name 'e1'?
Along with your answer, please include:
- The directory structure of the files (including sibling files, symbolic links, aliases, invisible file(s), parent directory, 5\five or six ancestor directories, all children directories.
- What the classpath should be, where/when to change it, (in a file with a certain name and/or in a certain location OR as a terminal command such as 'set CLASSPATH'
Please make sure the method is reproducible, and not something that will only work once, and in one place for reasons including but not limited to: the parent directory being on the default class path, planetary alignment, names that happen to mimic/be similar to names that are set up by default, etc...
