Here's yet another classpath question, this time from someone who's making the brave leap to a command line shell.
I'm having a problem with a class not being found and I suspect it's a classpath thing.
Would some kind soul please tell me how to set the classpath for user classes in a tcsh shell?
Thanks for your help,
Pauline
ps oops, almost forgot: do I need to unzip a zip file first, or can a put JavaRanchCommon.zip in the classpath?

Ok, nevermind the p.s. question, just saw that the zip should work. I'm still playing with the actual command to get the classpath right in there.

Should be all set now with the docs from sun.

This is what I get for changing hardware and software at the same time...

hi pauline! so, you are coming over to the Linux side?! i built a machine last year and put RedHat on one of the partitions... the only problem is that my windows installations are not stable, so i am about to rebuild the thing and format the hdd. i am thinking about building an exclusive linux machine so i do not have to worry about windows anymore!
i haven't tried using the JavaRanchCommon.zip file on my linux box yet, but it looks like you answered your own questions.

Hi Greg, nice to hear from you! I was getting worried about talking to myself via an internet forum.
I'm actually moving to unix, linux will have to wait for some future time. We use NT at work, but at home, and therefore for Java stuff, I have macintosh. Just moved up to the latest OS in order to work with Java 2 platform. Mac's OS X is based on unix and you have to (get to ) use command line to do the java compiling, etc., so I'm learning command line geekiness along with java.
When you say you "built" a box, do you mean with bolts and screws and the like? Or do you mean the dreaded reformat/partition procedure?
Pauline

both! i purchased all the cards/drives/fans seperately and put it all together. since then i have reformatted 4 or 5 times
i originally did it because i wanted a computer besides my laptop... so i decided to build it for the experience. then, when i installed win2000, i had all kinds of problems. so i partitioned and installed win98 as well. more problems, reformat. now i have win98, win2000 and RedHat 7.1 on the same hdd.
my processor is fried due to overheating, though, so i am about to upgrade and maybe install winXP with RedHat 7.2 on seperate hdd's. i guess i wasted US$300 on win2000. i might even build an exclusive linux box so i will always have a stable machine.
