i've started java today but have stuck for hours ago.

i'm using Mac OSx 10.4.10 and trying to compile the code with Terminal.
It seems i don't know how to set class path.
please open my world to Java.

thanks.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

First, please check your private messages by clicking on My Private Messages. Thanks!

Next, are you certain it's the CLASSPATH you want to set? Generally, this is not the case. What are you trying? And what errors are you getting?

(In the meantime, see this thread for a Mac "Hello World" example.)

Hello NK.

It's important for you to know, "where" your Java files are saved.

The easiest way I compile my files is:

1. I save them in one main place (for example: /myusername/javascripts

2. I open the terminal and change into the directory -> cd javascripts

3. I compile my Java file: javac example.java

4. I run my Java file: java example

You can also compile your files from your home directory using the whole path to the file, but I think it�s much quicker and easier to change into the directory and stay there for compiling and executing your Java files.
